This Thalictrum is prized for its delicate sprays of arched lavender flowers with bright yellow stamens which hang from the flowers like tiny bell tongues. It can be used in many different situations in the garden – as it is a plant through which other flowers can be seen, and fits in well as a background plant or in groups where it appears to advantage. The flowers appear on lovely sturdy purple stems, and the pretty tracery of fine, ferny grey green foliage makes a very attractive ground cover in its own right, during the spring and summer. This plant blooms later than other Thalictrums, from mid to late summer and for a longer time period (up to 6 weeks), and adds a vertical accent to the garden with its clouds of rose-lavender flowers. It is a good cut flower, is easy to grow and is not eaten by rabbits.
