Plant id – Thalictrum

(Question)

Can you please identify this 9 foot perennial. I planted it in 2013 or 2014 and have lost the name and source.
Thank you.

Thank you for sending this photo.  You have a meadow rue, possibly Thalictrum rochebruneanum, commonly known as ‘Lavender Mist’ meadow rue.  You must have it in ideal soil and site conditions if it is 9 feet tall.  Generally it grows to 6 feet.

Enjoy your beautiful perennial!
