The genus Thalictrum contains 120–200 species of perennial herbaceous plants in the buttercup family, Ranunculaceae.

Common names for plants within this genus include meadow-rue. The secret to the plant’s ability to cross-pollinate by wind is its arrangement of reproductive parts, which allows pollinators to reach their pollen without getting too close to its fragrant petals.

The plant is also pollinated by bees, butterflies, and other insects that visit the nectar spur. The plant’s flowers grow on a stalk and bloom from spring to fall.

Thalictrum is a herbaceous perennial plant that grows between 1 and 2.5 metres in height. It is one of the best plants to grow and displays beautiful pink flowers in June.

It can even give height to the borders. Thalictrum has the additional benefit of long-lasting flowers with attractive seed heads.

It is a perennial, which means it dies back to the ground annually, but its root system remains alive. Thalictrum prefers soil that is on the moist side and very well-drained.

It will do well in borders in most places, for example, in partial shade or under other plants such as hazel bushes or rose bushes. It is not tall, so it is not usually staked.

It is prone to be blown over by strong winds, which destroys its foliage but often not its flower heads. Compared with staking Thalictrum, which wastes its exquisite beauty when plants around it are staked, planting Thalictrum around other flowers gives the whole design a more relaxed and ethereal look and feel.

If your garden needs more elegant and delicate flower displays, consider planting Thalictrum.
