The best way to describe this splendid plant is as Thalictrum Delavayi on steroids. Same clusters of tiny pearl-like buds that open to lilac flowers with striking yellow anthers, rather coarser foliage and altogether a larger and more muscular specimen. Nice dark purple stems. Sun or semi-shade. Rich moist soil is best. To 5 feet. 2 litre pot.
