DescriptionI thought this could make a lovely mobile for a baby! Of course it would need replacing every few days, but that could be an advantage for the baby's developing discernment.These are a few flowers and buds of a herbaceous perennial bush native to Japan, known as lavender mist, and also meadow rue, with a tongue twisting scientific name, thalictrum rochebruneanum. Grown for garden decoration, its many tiny, pendulous, lavender-purple flowers with yellow stamens bloom in July and August, in Pennsylvania. Plants are tall and airy, four to six feet tall, with sturdy purplish stems that do not need staking. Likes medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. It is low maintenance and tolerates deer and rabbits. Intolerant of the heat and humidity of the deep South. (Sorry, y'all, but at least you have the most gorgeous sunsets!) ^.^
