Thalictrum flavum ssp. glaucum
at Digging Dog

Thalictrum

Meadow-Rue

Once upon a time, the newborn infant was placed upon a pillow filled with Meadow-Rue to ensure a prosperous life. Thalictrum means “to flourish,” and it does, with elegant foamlike sprays that resemble Baby’s Breath, and rounded, finely cut, compound foliage. Tougher than it appears, Thalictrum is the perfect choice for the border.

You will never “rue” planting this winning European native. As it emerges in spring, tender mauve-tinted stems and foliage scramble skyward. By midsummer, gleaming and glaucous trilobed, silvery blue-green foliage adorns brawny upright stems. Erect, gossamer-like panicles of soft yellow burst upward in a frothy show.

Absolutely striking when planted in a drift with Phlomis russeliana and Spodiopogon sibiricus.

Size: 5' 0"–6' 0" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
