Thalictrum lucidum seeds

$4.90

A very beautiful thalictrum which adds light and movement to the summer garden.

Description

This extremely beautiful perennial bears abundant  delicate airy clouds of soft cream powderpuff-like flowers which have bright yellow stamens.  The beautiful dark green fern-like leaves appear to be polished,  and this characteristic has given rise to its common name ‘Shining Meadow  Rue’. As an added bonus the foliage turns bright gold in the autumn.

This thalictrum is easy going, likes dappled shade and moist soil, but will tolerate full sun or partial shade so long as it is kept moist.  It is an excellent border plant, and adds texture and light  to the garden, with its shimmering leaves. Both leaves and flowers can be cut for floral work.

Sowing advice

Propagate at 20 deg C. If there is no germination in 3-4 weeks then enclose the moist seed tray or pot in a plastic bag and tie the bag, and put the bag with the seeds in it, into the door or vegetable compartment of the fridge. Leave there for 4 weeks. Remove from the fridge. This process can be repeated if germination doesn’t occur.
