Thalictrum thalictroides / Rue Anemone
One of the classic spring wildflowers of dry woods, emerging as the forest floor warms in the sun of early spring, before the canopy leafs out. Delicate foliage with white blooms, emerging pink.
Unlike more ephemeral spring wildflowers, the foliage persists at least until summer droughts.
Height: <1′ Blooms: April – June
Habitat: Dry, part shade to shade
