Buy Thalictrum 'Elin' meadow rue: A taller than average cultivar

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

  • Position: full sun or light, dappled shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Perfect for the back of the herbaceous border, this statuesque perennial has purple/blue-flushed foliage and an abundance of lavender-purple summer flowers. The stems are tall and sturdy, which means that it rarely needs staking despite its height, and its light and airy silhouette ensures it never becomes oppressive.

  • Garden care: In windy or exposed positions, it may need supporting with brushwood or garden canes. Divide congested plants as new growth begins in spring, although divisions may be slow to re-establish. Resist cutting back the old growth until early spring.

Thalictrum - Meadow Rue hardiness? Hi there, My wife and I are new to plant selection so could do with your help before buying please. We are trying to add to an established garden, but want a low maintenance, grow back each year border area. Could you advise if Thalictrum 'Black Stockings'- Meadow Rue is suitable for growing in Cumbria? It attracted our attention whilst visiting RHS Rosemoor last summer,- I was thinking of planting it near an 8ft high N/West facing wall between other perennials for support if needed Any comments please? Thank you

Hello There, It is difficult to tell you if a certain plant will grow in a particular garden in Cumbria, however these plants are fully hardy and will thrive in most fertile, moist soils in full sun or partial shade. I'm sorry not to be more help, but it is a lovely plant. Helen Plant Doctor

Peter Brunton

Hello again, As it is fully hardy it can be planted out at any time of the year, but the best times are spring or autumn. Best regards, Helen Plant Doctor

Thanks for that Helen. I was mainly concerned if we were too far North for it to survive. If I was to order some plants for planting out, what time of the year? Could you advise please. Thanks
