Thalictrum rochebrunianum (Ranunculaceae)
(tha-LIK-trum row-she-brew-nee-AY-num)
Lavender Mist Meadow Rue

Sturdy upright stems produce large airy panicles in summer, yielding small light-lavender flowers with drooping yellow stamens. The effect is magical, managing to be both soft and bold. Lobed leaves resemble a beefy columbine, and form a low pedestal for the towering spires of bloom. This misty beauty is happiest in lightly shaded areas here in the South site in average to rich soils with plenty of moisture.
