I bought this plant as Filipendula hexapetala Flore Plena. http://www.bluestoneperennials...

Where should it go in the DB? Is it even spelled correctly?

It doesn't seem correct chelle, for a start 'flore pleno' usually means double flowers.

Secondly, Filipendula hexapetala is a synonym of Filipendula vulgaris ..

http://www.theplantlist.org/tp...

Which is on this site .. there is a Flore Pleno of vulgaris, double.

Let's see if we can track it down .. Grandiflora has large, white flowers .. but I'm only finding Filipendula vulgaris which looks like yours.

That's what I found as well.

I believe I should add it as simply, Filipendula vulgaris.

Thanks, again! Thumbs up
