Thalictrum rochbrunianum

Meadow-rue

Tough and dependable this is a Japanese native with purplish, Aquilegia-like foliage. 

The flower stems are sturdy and upright rising to over a metre. 

The flowers are fluffy clouds of lavender-pink complimented by prominent soft-yellow anthers. As with all Thalictrum it grows best in light dappled shade but this species can tolerate a little more sun than others. 

The soil should be rich and humusy with some moisture. 

Cut the whole plant down to its base in autumn. New spring growth is hard to spot as it tends to be very dark coloured so just be a little careful with spring weeding. 

A very good selection for those new to the genus.
