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.
Loosely garbed in striking steely blue foliage, Elins tall purple-tinged stems maintain a stately carriage. An arresting hybrid between Thalictrum flavum var. glaucum and Thalictrum rochebrunianum, its sturdy upright stalks culminate in open trusses of bicolored pale yellow and lavender flowers. Known to grow up to 12 ft. tall, this lofty Thalictrum paints soft smoky hues in the background and seldom needs staking.
