Thalictrum delavayi Hewitt's Double

Chinese Meadow Rue Hewitt’s Double

A fairly new introduction, but already a classic, Thalictrum delavayi Hewitt's Double is herbaceous perennial with a rather lax, upright habit. The mid-green leaves are lacy and divided into three rounded leaflets, delicate and very attractive, reminiscent of maidenhair fern. Flower buds like little mauve raindrops on branched, airy stems open to little, mauve, double, rosette-like flowers with a yellow eye. Looks lovely spaced along a border of blue, purple and pink flowers. It can flop a little, but usually other plants will hold it up.
