Thalictrum dioicum

Common name: Early Meadow Rue

Native plant

Early Meadow Rue is a spring flowering plant with green-white colored flowers that have a slight purple tinge.  Leaves are fine-textured and grey-green, and offer quite an interesting compliment to spring and early summer plants.  Plants tend to die back during the hottest months of the year, and basal leaves return in the early fall.  Although it can withstand full sun conditions, this plant prefers dappled shade.
