Buy Thalictrum aquilegiifolium meadow rue: Plumes of mauve or white flowers

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or lightly dappled shade
  • Soil: moist, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: slow to average
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Fluffy mauve or white flower clusters appear in June and July, held on upright stems above grey-green, fern-like foliage. The dainty blooms of this early flowering meadow rue provide an excellent contrast with larger flowered plants. Perfect for a border in partial shade, the stems need supporting with brushwood or garden canes.

  • Garden care: Divide plants as new growth begins in spring though divisions may be slow to re-establish. In autumn cut back flower stems to the ground.

Your description of Thalictrum Aquilegiifolium says: "Fluffy mauve or white flower clusters". Does this mean that either colour could appear on this plant, with no guarantee whether it would be mauve or white? I am looking for a mauve flowering version.

Yes, that's right, this is a variable species, so the flower colour can be either mauve or white.
