This wonderful perennial forms a solid clump with herbaceous feathery foliag which comes back fresh each spring.
A close relative of the Aquilegia (Columbine), Thalictrum has masses of tiny flowers held on airy sprays that emerge in the early summer.
This particular variety has double flowers, which resemble cute little lilac pompoms on stems to about 50cm, but often taller on more mature plants where there is competition for height and light.
Easy to grow, these are also pretty untroubled by pests and diseases, sometimes these will attract aphids on the new flowering stems as they emerge, but generally trouble-free.
An easy hardy-perennial, suited to partial shade and moist but well-drained soil.
