Thalictrum ‘Elin’

Elin Meadow-rue

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.513.050

This is one of the tallest Meadow-rue selections, forming a narrow and upright mound of lacy blue-green foliage, a little bit like a Columbine or Maidenhair Fern in effect. In midsummer the purplish stems hold loose and elegant sprays of soft lavender flowers, with a contrasting tuft of yellow stamens. An unusual cut flower. Terrific in the woodland garden, or a moist sunny border. Stems may require staking. Stems may require staking. Clumps may be carefully divided in spring every 3 to 4 years if desired. Cut back to the ground in late autumn. Bred by Coen Jansen of the Netherlands.
