Grow in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Prefers moist, rich, humusy soils in part shade or dappled sun. Needs consistent moisture if grown in full sun. This plant has better tolerance for heat and dryish soils than many of the other varieties of thalictrum. Taller stems often need staking. Plants may be cut back after bloom if foliage depreciates. May be grown from seed.
