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 foam-like sprays that resemble Baby’s Breath, and rounded finely-cut compound foliage. Tougher than it appears, Thalictrum is the perfect choice for a border or less formal setting.
Discovered as a garden seedling between Thalictrum elegans and Thalictrum delavayi by celebrated French Heuchera breeder, Thierry Delabroye, this towering floriferous Meadow Rue is indeed splendid. Sky-bound and steadfast, 9 ft. tall, crimson-tinted stalks, clothed with lacy grayish green foliage, have a willowy architectural appeal. Myriad lavender-pink flowers, centered by cream-colored stamens, comprise a massive, yet lithe pastel cloud, which envelopes the entire upper 3 ft. of each impressive plant nearly all summer long.
