Thalictrum delavayi has beautiful, fine feathery foliage similar to a small aquilegia leaf , or perhaps a maidenhair fern leaf. Its clusters of mauve flowers are borne in panicles aloft on purple tinged stems in an airy spray of misty lilac mauve.

Cut down stems as soon as flowering has completed. Divide the plant every 2-3 years as soon as growth begins in spring, in order to maintain its strength. Large divisions can be replanted outside, smaller ones overwintered in a greenhouse for planting out the following spring.

Thalictrum are native to stream banks, shaded mountains, and moist meadows throughout most of the globe and thus they like dappled shade and moisture retentive soil , which is not waterlogged however. Most Thalictrum are late to emerge in mid to late spring, so take care not to disturb their crowns.
