This is the first time that I’ve had this pink Filipendula flower. It’s been in the ground a couple of years from some pots leftover from a local plant sale. (The deer have nipped off the tops before flowering in previous years.)
It goes close to 6 feet tall. So I’m guessing that it’s Filipendula rubra ‘Venusta’, but there are others that fit this description.
It’s in ‘the wet garden’ along with monarda, eupatorium, veronicastrum, Verbena hastata, Â tradescantia and others that appreciate the constant and sometimes excessive moisture.
There has been a lot of discussion about PhotoShopping images on several other blogs. I did fiddle with these a little. But I was amazed with the differences in bloom color in these evening shots depending on the angles — backlit vs. sun over my shoulder vs. shooting perpendicular to the light. Â The differences in my raw images were even greater than I’d ever see when fiddling around with the images in PhotoShop.
