This completely new and desirable species from the Far East is a unique colour break in thalictrums. It produces a delicate basal spread of incredibly fine maidenhair foliage, above which arise thin, repeatedly branching sprays, carrying showers of countless, tiny, shimmering, tasselated pink and yellow flowers.
Sow seeds IMMEDIATELY you receive them, at any time of the year, they depend on having several months in cold, damp compost, (NOT DRY IN A FRIDGE) before they will germinate. Keep the seed tray moist in a cold greenhouse or shady corner. These fresh seeds can be very slow to germinate. Do not use any artificial heat in an attempt to germinate them as it may cause them to enter even deeper dormancy.
Common name:Chinese Meadow Rue, T. uchiyama
