Meadowrue - Thalictrum rochebrunianum

This species of meadow rue is a slender, clump-forming perennial which features lacy, fine-textured, bluish-green, columbine-like foliage. Tiny, pendulous, lavender-purple flowers with contrasting yellow stamens appear in late summer in loose, airy clusters atop sturdy, purple flower stems which rise well above the foliage to 4-6' tall. When massed, the overall effect of the bloom can be spectacular.
