Product Description

Despite its delicate appearance this lovely plant is nigh on indestructible. An upright, very architectural perennial, Meadow Rue is one of those low maintenance plants that reliably gives a great show every year.

Due to its airy nature, it forms a fairly see-through clump which is invaluable in a border as plants will not crowd out others, allowing them to grow up and through its delicate leaves, and as the flowers are held high they will not obscure other plants.

Thalictrum grows strongly in any reasonably well-lit border, even in the poorest soils and forms an airy cloud of tiny, pinkish-purple blooms on ferny foliage. The centre of each of the cupped flowers is filled with tiny yellow stamens, making them really stand out on a summer's day.

Spells of poor summer weather do not seem to bother it and the plants are fresh, healthy and colourful all year with an attractive pink tinge to the young spring growth.

A great plant for filling spacious borders and very nice as a cut flower in large floral vases.

Plant Information

Top Tips

If grown in fertile soil, plants will grow rapidly and may need staking to prevent the spires of bloom from toppling over.

Care Guide

  • Plant in fertile soil that does not dry out, ideal in woodland gardens.
  • Prefers light shade and may need staking.
  • Plants are late to emerge after winter dormancy, new leaves will appear from mid to late spring. 

To plant:

  • Water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
