Thalictrum thalictroides (Rue Anemone)

Rue Anemone, Anemonella thalictroides, Syndesmon thalictroides


Thalictrum thalictroides (Rue Anemone) is a charming woodland perennial boasting white to pinkish flowers, 1 in. across (2.5 cm), adorned with 5-10 petal-like sepals and a dense cluster of small green pistils. Blooming for about 3 weeks in mid to late spring, the delicate flowers appear in loose clusters atop reddish-brown stems and rise above a lacy whorl of 3-parted, dark-green leaves. This small, delicate-looking plant is quite tough, as both leaves and flowers tolerate hard frosts in spring. Rue Anemone becomes dormant in summer.

  • Grows up to 6-10 in. tall and wide (15-25 cm).
  • Thrives in humus-rich, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun or part shade. Tolerates full shade. Best planted under deciduous trees. It prefers dappled sunlight during the spring, but tolerates considerable shade later in the year.
  • Fits beautifully in wildflower gardens, woodland gardens, or rock gardens.
  • Easy to grow, Rue Anemone is generally pest and disease free.
  • Propagate by division, root cuttings or seed.
  • Native to eastern North America.
