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 lofty cultivar sprang into being when Dutch landscape designer Dirk de Winter crossed Thalictrum rochebrunianum and Thalictrum flavum ssp. glaucum. Dressed with fetching glaucous blue-green leaves, firm upright deep purple stalks hurl themselves towards the heavens, while cushioning a frothy open array of petite rosy-purple buds and alabaster-colored blooms that keep the honeybees happy plus make sprightly additions to cut arrangements. Grandiose, prismatic and easygoing, ‘Anne’s compelling vertical carriage can reside in the back of the border behind cohorts such as Eupatorium ‘Gateway’ and Sedum ‘Vera Jameson’.
