This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.


  • Position: full sun or lightly dappled shade
  • Soil: moist, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: slow to average
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Fluffy mauve or white flower clusters appear in June and July, held on upright stems above grey-green, fern-like foliage. The dainty blooms of this early flowering meadow rue provide an excellent contrast with larger flowered plants. Perfect for a border in partial shade, the stems need supporting with brushwood or garden canes.

  • Garden care: Divide plants as new growth begins in spring though divisions may be slow to re-establish. In autumn cut back flower stems to the ground.
