The Tall Meadow Rue is especially tall this year in our landscape with all the rainfall we've had - almost 6 feet in height. It typically reaches heights of 3 to 5 feet. A native perennial of medium to moist locations in full sun.
Tall Meadow Rue is very common in Minnesota, growing in low lying, moist, sunny areas next to wetlands or riparian habitats. Meadow Rue is rhizomatous so it often forms small clusters.
If you have a spot with moist, loamy or sandy soils in full sun, Tall Meadow Rue is an excellent candidate.
