Flowers: July-September.  Plant in part shade.  HxS 1.5mx50cm

This lovely Chinese meadow rue is an elegant upright perennial with large, fern-like, grey-green foliage. Panicles of small lilac-mauve flowers with cream stamens on dark-purple stems make an airy display well above the foliage throughout summer – may need staking.  Thalictrum enjoy a humus rich soil which is well drained, but moist during summer.  This is an excellent architectural plant which performs well when planted in drifts at the back of a border.  Hardiness H7. Pot size 9cm.
