Humus-rich soils will allow this plant to flourish. Staking may be required to support Thalictrum delavayi in your borders and beds. Full sun or part shade in a sheltered situation are preferred. An amazing architectural plant that often attracts wildlife. T.delavyii appears very late in the spring and is prone to being either dug up accidentally or trodden on, it is a wise precaution to mark where the plants are.
