Thalictrum kuisinum

Genus: Thalictrum.

Species: Thalictrum kuisianum.

From PCW (Phil) June 2014 Planted in Acer bed - in front of A. Garnet.
A real gem in the genus and certainly dwarf by comparison to its related species which can reach over 1.2m! It is a hardy herbaceous perennial which begins growth early in spring, first emerges the foliage. This is deep green and slightly serrated, held on extremely wiry stems, up to about 1 cm wide. The flowers are smallish but very numerous, the petals are needle-like and around 5mm long. Each flower lasts for a few weeks but numerous flowers are produced in succession and en-masse
