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.
A buoyant flourish of double pale purple blooms with yellow eyes adorn this Thalictrum’s tall-flowering stems. We often grow ‘Hewitt’s Double’ among other plants, such as Anemone ‘Andrea Atkinson’, for support, especially in areas exposed to summer wind and rain.
Size: 4' 0" – 6' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.
