Queen of the Prairie (Filipendula rubra)
Queen of the Prairie is known for its beautiful spray-like clusters of pink flowers that make it a stand out and give it its regal name. The leaves are large and deeply lobed on zig zag stems, and the plants grow to 5 feet tall. It's best grown in full sun (although they can take some shade), and prefers moist to wet soils.
