A most delicate Thalictrum, not easy to photograph; lax inflorescences of lavender, large flowers with protruding yellow stamens which are trailing over the fine, lacy foliage. The stems are purple and make a nice contrast with the foliage turning yellow in the fall.
In my garden it starts flowering in August (in part-shade) and is not very tall – characters of T. delavayi var. decorum; however, the flowers are not that large like supposed to be, so I will keep it as the species.
Germination: should germinate at warm, if not after a month switch the pot in cold conditions for a few weeks.
