  • Flowers attract bees

  • Flowers attract butterflies

  • Plant for shade

Bright green, delicate, fern-like foliage gives rise to tall stems bearing loose, airy panicles of beautiful white flowers in summer. 

Prefers a fertile, moisture retentive but well-drained soil in partial shade. Some staking required in windy gardens. Grows slower than the species T. delavayi. 

Height: 30 - 48 inches / 75 - 120cm

Spread: 24 - 36 inches / 60 - 90cm

Lynne's notes:

I love all thalictrums but the combination of the lime green foliage and bright white flowers is so refreshing. Mid summer is often a cacophony of bright colours and large flowers but the delicate airiness of this Thalictrum is a welcome change and adds that something extra to the border. A real favourite of mine.

Delivery Options

Our web shop is now open for you to browse and make your selection from. Postage and packing charges depend on the total weight of plants you buy. We only send plants out Monday (not Bank Holidays) to Wednesday. This is to avoid packages being left in the postage system over the weekend. Shipping plants and keeping them healthy along the process is an intricate matter. As we care for the plants we sell we deliver them in a way that ensures they have enough to drink and enough protection between our nursery and your home.
