  • Flowers attract bees

  • Flowers attract butterflies

  • Plant for chalk soil

  • Plant for clay soil

  • Plant for partial 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.
