Native herbaceous perennial with distinctive, broadly-toothed basal leaves and flowers imparting a very pleasant fragrance, borne in a loose apical inflorescence.
Grows on the edge of woodlands, in shrublands and dry meadows.
The genus name “filipendula” refers to its distinctive tubers, which hang by thread-like roots (from filum, Latin for ‘thread’, and pendulus, meaning ‘drooping’).
