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.
Have you been searching for a smaller-statured Meadow Rue? If so, this rarely offered cultivar fills the bill with its compact, delicate-looking bluish green foliage that maxes out at about 20 inches. Above the well-groomed foundation, a dreamy haze of copious amethyst-hued blooms levitates on upright, sturdy burgundy-tinged stalks. Perfect in cut arrangements, ‘Yulia’ makes a nimble-footed addition to border frontage, cottage gardens and space-thrifty plantings.
Size: 2' 0" – 2-1/2' high x 12" – 16" wide.
Hardy to zone 5.
