Thalictrum ichangense 'Purple Marble'

Plant details

A superb border plant where plenty of humus has been dug into the soil, Thalictrum ichangense  'Purple Marble' sends up a superb array of flower stems, which are topped by a hazy, fuzzy show of purple flowers. They add a marvellous, gentle effect in midsummer, contrasting well with more stately, formal plants. In open, exposed areas the plants may need to be supported.
