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.
This long-blooming Japanese denizen premiers large airy pouffes of copious tightknit yellow-centered lavender-blue flowers. Lodged atop thick upstanding stems dressed in wispy, yet robust Columbine-like bluish green leaves, the blossoms entertain dreamy soft hues that extend through autumn if judiciously deadheaded. Favoring cool semishady environs with adequate moisture, it’s ideal for bouquets and as a lanky perennial specimen in mixed borders or less formal venues, while its potential to suppress cancer has been demonstrated in recent medical studies.
