A friend gave this to me, telling me it was an aquilegia, but it's not like any aquilegia that I've ever seen! It has tripinnate leaves and lots of little purple flowers with yellow stamens. It is now about 5ft tall. Anyone know what it is, please?

It is a thalictrum, either rochebrunianum, quite a mouthful, or Hewitt's double.

Crikey! Thank you very much. Do you know what will happen to it in the winter?

It's a herbaceous perennial, so it will die down and then leaves will grow back next year if it is not disturbed. It's sometimes called Thalictrum aquilegifolium, because its leaves are a bit like Aguilegia leaves.

It is not Thalictrum acquilegifolium though, it blooms in April, this is a July- Aug. bloomer, it makes a great filler flower.
