Meadow Rue ~ who knew? Thalictrum Rochebrunianum. Lacy, refined, bluish-green foliage with airy clusters of lavender flowers and conspicuous soft-yellow centers, on gorgeous sturdy purple stems. Adding elegant vertical lines to your garden, and clouds of rosy-lavender blooms. Blooms later than other Meadow Rues, from mid to late summer, and longer-up to 6 weeks. Full sun/part shade (this always confuses me). Easy to grow :) Deer and rabbit tolerant. May need staking.
