Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Thalictrum 'Black Stockings' is a tall, willowy perennial that produces an abundance of fluffy mauve flowers on glistening black stems during the height of summer. Meadow Rue is perfect for filling gaps in woodland gardens and shaded borders, particularly as the elegant foliage provides an ideal backdrop for smaller perennials. Thalictrum plants can be incorporated into your shady border with almost any other plant; companions could include hostas, ferns or even larger-leaved plants such as Rodgersia. The foliage of Thalictrum can be added to summer bouquets for a delicate touch. Height: 200cm (79"). Spread: 75cm (30").
