Chinese Meadow Rue

Chinese Meadow Rue

Gives gardens delicate and colourful vertical interest.

Its airy clouds of tiny buttercups bloom in droves from midsummer to fall. The nodding, purple-pink flowers have contrasting, creamy yellow stamens and form on tall, wavy stems. Fernlike, deeply divided foliage adds further elegance to this upright perennial. Droughttolerant Chinese Meadow Rue is excellent as a background plant and in dried cut-flower arrangements.Thalictrum dipterocarpum
