Thalictrum Delavayi


Probably the most attractive of all of the species with huge panicles of nodding lilac flowers in mid to late summer. Elegant, delicate ferny foliage.

This very elegant plant needs a cool place sheltered from wind, perhaps supported among shrubs or some judiciously placed twiggy branches in order to protect its delicate foliage. Small deep lilac flowers, enclosing tufts of cream stamens dangle in airy-fairy fashion from wide, branching heads. Exquisite in late summer.
