Thalictrum Hewitt’s Double


From a base of divided grey-green leaves purple-tinted stems hold aloft huge airy sprays of tiny mauve pom-pom shaped flowers in late summer. The effect is magical but needs a little care to protect it from battering wind. Plant where it can be supported or sheltered by neighbours.

Thalictrum ‘Hewitt’s Double’  has sprays of stunning, lilac-purple, double flowers during late summer. These blooms burst from masses of small spherical buds, held high on the erect, burgundy stems. Humus-rich soil is required for this perennial to thrive. A border in partial shade and in a sheltered location is the ideal position. Whilst Th. Hewitt’s Double is initially slow to establish but it’s well worth the wait. Once your clumps are large enough ‘Hewitts Double’ can be propagated by division during the spring.

 NOTE:T.delavyii ‘Hewitt’s Double’ appears very late in the spring and is prone to being either dug up accidentally or trodden on, it is a wise precaution to mark where the plants are!
