SOLVED: Mystery Garden Flower ID

East Bridgewater, MA

My wife can't place this cool flower that has sprouted in our garden. Notice the palm-like leaves which are a nice addition to the blossom

Possibly Filipendula rubra, AKA meadowsweet.

It's an astilbe. It popped into our heads out of nowhere while driving around.

Raleigh, NC(Zone 7b)

Not an Astilbe (which has basal compound foliage). Audrey is correct, it's a Filipendula and likely F. rubra based on the pink flower color.

Cool! Happy to be wrong and corrected. We thought it was astilbe for years!
