Thalictrum aquilegifolium plants



There are just a few of these plants in 8cm pots

Thalictrum aquilegifolium is a very beautiful perennial. It has a basal mound of fine lacy bluish- green foliage that appears similar to an aquilegia.

The flower stems which are produced in late spring and early summer are topped with large panicles of lavender -purple to  white  fuzzy flowers. The white is pictured.

Thalictrum is tolerant of warm humid summers, and prefer a rich soil which is moist. It enjoys dappled sun, but is fairly tolerant and will take partial shade. If it is kept moist it will tolerate full sun.

It is an easy care plant, and if the seed is sown early enough in the season it will flower in the same year.

Thalictrum aquilegifolium produces flower stems that rise above the foliage in late spring to early summer and are topped by a hazy, fuzzy show of purple flowers.
Despite their delicate appearance, Thalictrum is fairly tolerant of warm, humid summers.

They prefer a rich, humus rich soil on the moist side and dappled to partial shade, but will grow reasonably well in most borders if the soil is moisture retentive. In warm regions plants will tolerate full sun if kept moist. Clumps may be easily divided in spring when growth commences, and it is wise to divide it every 2-3 years to renew its strength.
