Thalictrum you like
I have seen many posts this summer and fall extolling the virtues of Thalictrum 'Splendide'. I get the impression from my on-line reading that it is the superior variety of all the many perennial varieties of Thalictrum. However for many of us it is too large a plant for our smaller residential gardens.
Do you have personal experiences with smaller stature Thalictrums that are perform very well in your garden?
How much shade can these plants tolerate (and of course still flower)?
