Perennial flowering plant - what is it?

I lost the label to this beautiful perennial plant that I bought last year and need to know what the name is. The leaves are similar to maidenhair fern. It grows to about 5 feet.

    Thalictrum, but I'm not sure which one. T. delavayi and its hybrids tend to have mauve flowers like that. 
    Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Soil type: sandy, well-drained

    Thank you.  It is such a beautiful plant and easy to grow with good compost. Slug and insect resistant, it is non-invasive and stands tall no matter what the weather. Getting some more now as I love Thalictrum delavayii <3

    For those who do not have room for a tall one try the tiny Thalictrum kuisianum.
