Thalictrum 'Black Stockings'

Common name meadow rue
Family ranunculaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5-8)
Flowers pink
Size to 6'
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes prefers rich, moist soil

This hybrid meadow rue has the frilly flowerheads of T. aquilegiifolium in a candy pink, offset by very dark stems. I'm growing mine from seed, which may not come true. Time will tell.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
