Plant details

Thalictrum delavayi produces numerous tiny flowers that create a fluffy effect when seen from a distance. These are grown for their attractive foliage and flowers, smaller species work well in a shady rock garden and larger species are useful for the back of a border. They grow best in a moist soil in partial shade. Slugs may be a problem and they are susceptible to powdery mildew in dry conditions. This plant produces lilac flowers with long yellow stamens.
