‘Lavender Mist’ meadow rue

Thalictrum rochebruneanum 'Lavender Mist'

thah-LIK-trum roesh-broo-nee-AY-num Audio

This hauntingly beautiful specimen has blue-green foliage along matte, purple-green, willowy stems. At 5 or more feet in height, it has a dramatic yet delicate garden presence. Its sprays of nodding lilac flowers have pale yellow stamens. Plant at the back of a border; it may require staking.

Noteworthy Characteristics'Lavender Mist' earns its place in the garden with its foliage alone. It does well as a backdrop or see-through plant in a mixed border. It is also suitable for a wild or woodland garden.
