Thalictrum plants combines well with almost any other plant in your shady border; from ferns to hostas or even larger-leaved plants such as Rodgersia. The foliage can also be useful to add a light airy feel to summer bouquets. Height: 200cm (79"). Spread: 75cm (30").

When planting your Thalictrum, choose a position in semi shade or dappled on reliably moist, well-drained, fertile soil. Work some compost or general fertiliser into the top 20cm of the soil when planting. Taller species may need support to protect their flowering stems.
Feed and water Thalictrum plants regularly until fully established. In autumn, remove old foliage and faded Thalictrum flower stems to ground level. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes.
