Once upon a time, the newborn infant was placed upon a pillow filled with Meadow-Rue to ensure a prosperous life. Thalictrum means “to flourish,” and it does, with elegant foam-like sprays that resemble Baby’s Breath, and rounded finely-cut compound foliage. Tougher than it appears, Thalictrum is the perfect choice for a border or less formal setting.
This new medium-sized Thalictrum proffers a lilac-colored flurry of loosely-arranged froth-like blooms on sleek, upright and branched midnight-purple stems. The sprightly flowers hover above refined pinnate blue-green leaflets that gracefully cloak a tasteful, more compact habit. Beloved by pollinators and especially gardeners who are short on space, ‘Purplelicious’ can be easily nudged into cottage gardens, border edges and cut arrangements, where it affords wispy allure and purple aplenty.
Size: 18" – 2' 0" high x 12" wide.
Hardy to zone 5.
