One of the best meadow-rues! Once you see this flower at its peak, you'll find you can't manage without it. The open sprays of double lilac/pink small flowers from blue green foliage are enchanting. The flowers are carried well above the greenery and the colour is sufficiently dispersed to allow you to see through. A long-flowering must-have. Always in short supply so get on the Wish List for this one.
