Very new on the scene and sure to sell like hotcakes is this lovely giant Meadowrue from French breeder Thierry Delabroye. 'Splendide' is a sterile selection, and therefore wants to flower continuously. It begins in June, bearing sprays of soft lavender clouds on 6-9' stems. Plants will no doubt be top heavy, so we recommend staking for added support.

Holy S...! This giant meadow rue from French heuchera breeder, Thierry Delabroye popped up as a garden seedling resulting from a midnight rendevous between the Chinese Thalictrum delavayi and Thalictrum elegans...oh, those hot French liaisons! The result is a 9' tall stalk, composed of lacy, deer-resistant foliage, of which the top 3' is a massive 4' wide cloud-like cluster of lavender-pink dangling flowers starting in late June (NC) and continuing until late summer. Because of the immense floral weight, the stems are more slanted than the politics on MSNBC, so a support structure of strong neighbors is suggested. Thalictrum 'Splendide' also had its tubes snipped (legal in France), so don't worry about having unwanted meadow rues to support. Rich soils, like relatives, are highly recommended.
