However a few weeks ago I was looking for some low growing plants to soften the gravel edge in my back garden and was considering an Epimedium, which I love, then saw this little diminutive Thalictrum ichangense and it was love at first sight. Lovely soft bronze foliage with diffuse white vein markings. Apparently it will flower continuously from spring till autumn. It originates from China and was first available in the nursery trade around 2004. I bought one and planted between a variegated Pittosporum and a new Bergenia at the base of my new greenhouse. Its just started flowering and is a little treasure! I'm converted!
