Thalictrum delavayi 'Hewitt's Double' forms a dense, mound of lacy foliage that gives tall stems of lilac-pink flowers. Flowers appear in sprays in the summer and are quite showy and long-lasting. Think of it as Baby's Breath for shadier areas. This is a nice choice for perennial borders, meadows, or wildflower gardens. It also makes a great background plant.

Homeowner Growing Tips: Grow in dappled shade, in moist soil. Amend with compost before planting. Tolerates more sun with reliably moist soil; this may reduce the need for staking. Sprouts late in spring, so it may be a good idea to mark your plant to avoid disturbing the area. Every 2-3 years, divide in spring as new growth begins, and apply mulch. Not a good plant for hot, humid regions.
