This stunning new meadow rue from the Terra Nova breeding program forms a 6' tall clump of lacy, green, deer-resistant foliage topped with large, pink flower heads reminiscent of Thalictrum rochebrunianum but, in this case, highlighted by jet-black stems. Breeding labels went missing, so we don't know the exact parentage behind this splendid hybrid. While Thalictrum 'Black Stockings' is very easy to grow under most garden conditions, moist rich soils result in optimal performance.
