Rue Anemone: Thalictrum thalictroides is a Delicate Woodland Perennial.

Rue-anemone is a delicate woodland perennial growing up to 9 inches tall. An excellent early spring wildflower for the woodland, native plant, or wild gardens. It is similar to Wood Anemone (Anemone quinquefolia).

Flowers appear in loose clusters above the three-lobed leaves, each flower having its stem. White flowers with 5-10 petal-like sepals (usually 5) and numerous greenish-yellow stamens. A long-blooming spring flower with a delicate, dainty appearance.

Blooms mid-to-late spring for about three weeks. Each flower is replaced by a cluster of 4-15 achenes. Inside each achene, there is a single seed. This wildflower spreads by reseeding itself.

 Rue Anemone Thrive in the Wild on Wooded Slopes and Ridges

The fruits are achenes, which are fruits that hold only one seed. The rue anemone's achene darkens as it ripens. Division, seeds, or cuttings should propagate the rue anemone from the roots. The seeds should be sowed outdoors in the fall. Typically grows in the wild on wooded slopes and ridges. The plant becomes dormant in summer. Synonymous with Anemonella thalictroides. Genus name comes from the Greek word thalictrum, a name used by Dioscorides to describe a plant in this genus.

 Rue Anemone (Thalictrum thalictroides) (Windflower)

It is a beautiful yet delicate plant native to the Eastern half of the United States and Canada.

 A beautiful addition to any woodland or partially to fully shaded rock garden, the plant grows to an average height of 9-11 inches and has many slender stems filled with rich, dark green, three-lobed leaves. A dainty white flower tops each stem with a petal arrangement that looks oddly like upturned umbrella ribs. 

 When in full bloom, the flowers stand out in patches resembling a bouquet ready to be picked and would look lovely as part of a table centerpiece at a spring wedding or shower party.

 It is also an ideal plant to establish in any wild, natural, or pollinator-friendly garden. It is an easy-to-grow perennial that is tolerant of both drought and dry, sandy soil conditions. 

 Blooming throughout the spring, the bright white to slightly pink flowers are a great source of early food for local pollinators, which in turn help the entire garden grow and thrive. 

It grows best in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 4-8 and prefers lightweight, brownish-black humus to partially sandy soil with high nutrient content.
