    Ornamental Features

    Lavender Mist Meadow Rue features airy spikes of lilac purple flowers with lemon yellow overtones rising above the foliage from mid to late summer. The flowers are excellent for cutting. Its round leaves remain bluish-green in color throughout the season. The fruit is not ornamentally significant. The deep purple stems are very colorful and add to the overall interest of the plant.

    Landscape Attributes

    Lavender Mist Meadow Rue is an open herbaceous perennial with a rigidly upright and towering form. Its medium texture blends into the garden, but can always be balanced by a couple of finer or coarser plants for an effective composition.

    This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and should be cut back in late fall in preparation for winter. It is a good choice for attracting bees and butterflies to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

    Lavender Mist Meadow Rue is recommended for the following landscape applications;

    • Accent
    • Mass Planting
    • General Garden Use
    • Naturalizing And Woodland Gardens

    Planting & Growing

    Lavender Mist Meadow Rue will grow to be about 3 feet tall at maturity extending to 5 feet tall with the flowers, with a spread of 24 inches. When grown in masses or used as a bedding plant, individual plants should be spaced approximately 18 inches apart. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years.

    This plant does best in partial shade to shade. It requires an evenly moist well-drained soil for optimal growth. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America. It can be propagated by division; however, as a cultivated variety, be aware that it may be subject to certain restrictions or prohibitions on propagation.
