Dubbed as Thalictrum 'Evening Star', this is a stunning selection of Thalictrum ichangense. Imported from China and incorrectly labelled as Thalictrum honanese (incorrectly offered as such by Wayside Gardens, I've been growing it for several years and it is a happy woodland plant with peltate, deep green/purple leaves with veins suffused in silver. The plants are topped with short, wiry and airy flowering stems that seem to bloom on and off during the summer.
Here ares some current photos I took:
I'm glad that this plant will become more widely available. While my slow efforts of growing these from seed are surpassed by the mass production capabilities of tissue culture (TC), there's always the excitement of what a batch of seedlings will yield with variations left and right vs. the exact clones you get through micropropagation.
