Columbine Meadow Rue (Thalictrum) is an ethereal perennial for partially shaded areas blooming with fluffy lilac-purple flowers in early summer. A variety of Aquilegia which is a great addition for any shaded areas in the garden, another easy plant to look after. Its foliage does get a lot taller than a standard Aquilegia a probably need some support as it begins to get taller. Once the flowers have finished trim them back and allow the foliage to die back naturally. Then eventually can be cut back down to the ground. Next year it will come back.
It is well worth it, it is a beautiful addition to the garden
My name is Jonathan and I enjoy working in my garden in my spare time. I am no professional, just an amateur. My second love is photography, shooting the flowers in my garden and of course sharing them with people who share my passions.
