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. Thalictrums 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. Organically grown in peat free compost. Hardiness H7. Pot size 1.5 litre.
