This fantastic woodland meadow rue isn't from meadows at all. In fact, it can be found happily growing on moist forest ledges between 2,000' and 6,000' elevation in the Chinese provinces of Yunnan, Sichuan, Hubei, Shanxi, Guizhou, Liaoning, and Zhejiang. In average to slightly moist garden soils, Thalictrum ichangense 'Evening Star' makes a delightful, small woodland specimen composed of quarter-sized, dark olive-green leaves, each highlighted by a lovely pattern of silver veins and topped from spring until fall with 15" tall sprays of tiny mauvy-lavender flowers...a high cute quotient. This seed strain was named by the folks at Terra Nova.
