I have fallen hugely for thalictrums in the last few years. This has the most beautiful, compact, lacy elegant foliage and then coloured cumulonimbus clouds of flowers in late summer.

Description

I have fallen hugely for thalictrums in the last few years. This has the most beautiful, compact, lacy, elegant foliage and then coloured cumulonimbus clouds of flowers in late summer. I love it both for picking and in a mixed border. This sterile form has petaloid stamens giving it a double-flowered effect and it blooms for ages.

Care Tips

The towering sprays need a little care to protect them from strong gusts. Plant where it can be supported or sheltered by other plants to avoid staking.
