Description

Floaty foliage and fluffy flowers gives Thalictrum 'Hewitt's Double' a graceful, airy presence. The loose sprays of tiny mauve-pink, pompon flowers provide a soft-focus haze that will melt the heart of even the toughest gardener! If you're a fan of delicate, lacy foliage, you'll find the scalloped leaves and almost impossibly slender stems of this double-flowered Thalictrum are just so alluring. The cloud-like display erupts in late spring, floating breezily on tall, wiry stems that top out at around 1.2m—perfect if you have a gap to fill in the middle of the border or to help beautifully screen a fence.    

Commonly known as double Chinese meadow-rueThalictrum 'Hewitt's Double' is a resilient hardy perennial which copes range of conditions – a border space in sun or light shade, preferred soil types include loam and clay. It looks its best in the dappled shade and most at home under the shelter of surrounding trees. Try teaming Thalictrum 'Hewitt's Double' with wispy grasses and dainty columbines for a dreamy meadow planting scheme.

Other information

    • Soak the Thalictrum 'Hewitt's Double' roots in water for 3-6 hours prior to planting

    • Plant your "Double Chinese meadow-rue" bare roots into temporary pots with a multipurpose compost in spring and grow-on in a sheltered spot outdoors

    • Choose a pot which comfortably fits the bare roots. Some have a noticeable crown which should be just below the soil surface with any top growth exposed. Some varieties are a length of root which should be planted lengthways and shallowly (1-2cm deep).

    • Plant out into borders or permanent containers in late spring or early summer once in full growth. Choose a position in sun or shade depending on the variety.
