Meadow-rue has beautiful, lacy foliage a little bit like a Columbine or Maidenhair Fern in effect. This selection produces rather tall clumps, with near-black stems that bear huge clusters of bright lavender-magenta flowers in midsummer. Makes an unusual cut flower. Terrific in the woodland garden, or a moist sunny border. Stems may require staking. Clumps may be carefully divided in spring every 3 to 4 years if desired. Cut back to the ground in late autumn.
