Lavender Mist Meadow Rue (Thalictrum rochebrunianum)

I'm wondering if this needs well drained soil or if it will live in heavier type soils, and if it re-seeds or comes up ea yr? I would love it if it came back every year over and over ?

Thalictrum Rochebrunianum is a long- lived perennial. It prefers moist, well drained soil but grows in my clay soil just fine. I'm not sure if it will self seed but I suspect it will. It is a rather slim upright plant and rather slow to expand in width so if you want a larger clump it's probably best to plant in multiples. Despite its height it is quite sturdy and doesn't seem to need staking. I think part shade will suit it best.
