Thalictrum lucidum plants – ( Meadow Rue)


Out of stock


Picture thanks for Jelitto Seeds

This extremely beautiful perennial bears abundant  delicate airy clouds of soft cream powderpuff-like flowers which have bright yellow stamens.  The beautiful dark green fern-like leaves appear to be polished,  and this characteristic has given rise to its common name ‘Shining Meadow  Rue’. As an added bonus the foliage turns bright gold in the autumn.

This thalictrum is easy going, likes dappled shade and moist soil, but will tolerate full sun or partial shade so long as it is kept moist.  It is an excellent border plant, and adds texture and light  to the garden, with its shimmering leaves. Both leaves and flowers can be cut for floral work.
