Thalictrum delavayi ‘Hewitt’s Double’ is a beautiful, late flowering Meadow Rue which enjoys a cool, moist soil and is peat tolerant, although just as happy in neutral or alkaline soil.  The petaloid stamens give the lilac-purple flowers a double-flowered effect and they resemble airy clouds of Gypsophila in August.  The foliage is rue-like and compact emerging in early spring from the rhizotomous root stock.  Every woodland garden should have one!  This is a slow-growing plant and often takes a year to become established.  Please order early or late as they are difficult to transport in full flower.  AGM.  Hardiness rating H7. Pot size 9cm.

Care & Maintenance.
