Thalictrum aquilegifolium 'Nimbus White' Meadow Rue



Thalictrum aquilegifolium 'Nimbus White' produces clouds of feathery white flowers on dark stems above lacy green foliage. The late spring, early summer flowers mature to lavender pink seed heads that extend the showy season. A deciduous perennial, also known as Meadow Rue, the foliage of Thalictrum aquilegifolium provides interest when it is not in bloom. 'Nimbus White' is a compact form that is shorter than the species and fits well into even small gardens.

Thalictrum aquilegifolium 'Nimbus White' prefers part sun to sun and moist, humus-rich, well drained soil. It is tolerant of average soil. Best with afternoon shade in very hot regions. 'Nimbus White' is suitable for gardens in the Deep South.

We ship via UPS or USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
