Our plant stand will open 05/28/22 this year and we'll be working a few markets as well.
Meadowsweet (Spiraea alba)
Note that these plants will not be available until mid to late June.
Although often mistaken for a wildflower, meadowsweet is technically a shrub! The white fuzzy flowers are a pollinator favorite and the stems take on more woody properties as the plant ages. Ethnobotany records reveal the plant has a rich history being as a green and in teas, but we haven’t had the pleasure of trying it yet and are waiting for the plants we’re growing to mature! Will update in a season or two with our personal experience!
These plants are plug sized and do not come in a pot and will not be at our farm stand unless by request. If you are interested but do not want to order online, please call/text, or contact through social media and we’ll make sure some are out there.
Why are We Planting This?
Favorite of pollinators and a host plant for the Spring Azure Butterfly
We’re most excited to incorporate this into homemade teas.
