We have quite a few meadow rues, fewer rues, and no meadows, but I digress. This Korean collection of the popular Thalictrum rochebrunianum has drawn raves from garden visitors. The sturdy, purple-black stems are clothed with thumbnail-shaped, blue-green leaflets. The deer-resistant clumps expand skyward starting in spring and are soon topped for months, beginning in early summer, with large flower heads of purple and yellow (purple petals and oversized yellow anthers). This meadow rue is incredibly showy and allows for some really cool color combos in the border...striking!
