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.
Showing amazing vigor, this exceptional Thalictrum was twice as large as the other delavayi seedlings when esteemed Dutch plantsman, Coen Jansen initially spotted it growing in a propagation tray. Glaucous, Columbine-like bluish green foliage drapes sleek, sky-high dark stalks that energetically thrust upward and support the large, effervescent soft-hued puffs--plenteous lilac-pink flowers with pronounced creamy yellow stamens on finely branched stems. A regal stand-alone for any garden, Ankums hearty, amber-colored spent stems sustain an exquisite presence long after the lovely blooms and leaves have faded.
