Thalictrum aquilegifolium


USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.513.020

Meadow-rue is an exceptionally beautiful perennial that shines in a moist woodland setting. Plants have delicate, lacy blue-green foliage a little bit like a Columbine or Maidenhair Fern in effect. The cloud-like sprays of mauve-lavender to white flowers are useful for cutting. Despite the delicate appearance, it is fairly tolerant of warm, humid summers. In cool regions plants will tolerate full sun if kept moist. Clumps may be easily divided in spring or fall.
