Thalictrum polycarpum

Meadow Rue.

We currently do not grow this plant.

A 2\' perennial with flowers arising 1\' above it. The foliage is green-grey with a leaf much like its columbine cousin. The flowers are an unusually delicate assortment of 1/2\" chinese lanterns, tassels, or silky threads according how you look at it. The woodsy folks love this. It should be planted in shady locations where there is a source of constant moisture. It doesn\'t like a lot of wet, but tolerates standing winter water. Although it is drought tolerant it will shut down at drought stress. Native in our area under Salix Hindsiana and Salix lasiolepis in sandy gravel. In wet years this site has 2 ft.flowing of Inter-planted with Heuchera, Columbines, a few large rocks and a whole lot of mulch in a high shade or filtered shade garden with regular water in a dry area or left alone in higher rainfall areas (35\"+) it is easy. It doesn\'t seem to matter which soil it is growing in.
