Thalictrum are rhizomatous or tuberous perennial plants, native to Asia and Europe. Slender stems and gentile, textured foliage are followed by clusters of small flowers with attractive stamens and large, colourful, petal like sepals. Thalictrum are best suited to flower beds and borders within a cottage and informal garden setting. You should expect to see Thalictrum grow to an approximate height of 1.5m (60”) and a spread of 40-60cm (16-24”).
Thalictrum are best planted in moist, well-drained soil of clay, loam and chalk within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are best positioned in an area of full sun or part shade. Particularly tall varieties or those positioned in an exposed site will require staking. Amend the planting area with a generous amount of organic matter to improve overall drainage. Dig a hole that will accommodate the height and width of the root, gently inserting Thalictrum into place and water thoroughly.
Thalictrum are low maintenance plants once fully established. Lightly fertilise and mulch your plants during the spring as this will retain moisture levels and suppress any weeds. Water Thalictrum regularly to keep the soil cool and moist, especially during periods of drought. During the autumn, cut Thalictrum to ground level to ensure healthy growth for the following season.
