    Dallas/Ft Worth area, planted them 1/2 shade along a wall. They thrive. The tea from the leaves is delicious and raises the mood. Our family just loves it. Flowered the 2nd year. We actually had snow this year on the ground for a week or so, it was no issue for the meadowsweet.

    My meadowsweet is the darling of my “side garden” on the western face of my house. Her lovely textured leaves tolerate the sun and dryness better than I had anticipated and she has grown back now for her 3rd year with no special treatment. While not as big and booming as she would be in a bit more shade and moisture this is a hardy plant that has not failed to make me smile since digging it in.
