Thalictrum rochebrunianum 'Tukker Princess'

Giant Meadow Rue (Lavender Mist Meadow Rue)

Categories: Herbaceous Perennial

Tiny, pendulous, lavender-purple flowers with contrasting yellow stamens appear in late summer (July-September in St. Louis) in loose, airy clusters atop sturdy, purple flower stems which rise well above the foliage to 4-6' tall (infrequently to 8'). When massed, the overall effect of the bloom can be spectacular.
