Shade Plant of the Week - Thalictrum or Meadow Rue

Thalictrum is commonly referred to as Meadow Rue.  Although the one below is a tall plant, it's very light and airy.  The leaves remind me of bleeding heart leaves, and it is topped with fuzzy almost aster like flowers.  Meadow Rue comes in variety of heights and colors (pink, lavender, white, and yellow).  It blooms late spring through early summer.
