The real name is Thalictrum polygamum being the Tall Meadow-Rue. Thalictrum dasycarpum is the Purple Meadow-Rue that is similar with a much larger native range that is less east and much farther west. Tall Meadow-Rue is a pretty and delicate native perennial that I see growing wild along woodland edges near watercourses or in moist or wet meadows occasionally in southeast Pennsylvania. It blooms in very late June and July. It is native from eastern Canada to Indiana and down to northern Georgia. Grown and offered by some native nurseries along with the Purple and Early Meadow-Rues. I encourage planting American native plants in America because they work out with better ecological benefit for beneficial wildlife.

A lovely native wildflower. I think it is a superior garden plant the European meadow rues which are much more commonly grown. Grows best in a moist spot with full sun or in part shade.
