Thalictrum dioicum - Early Meadow-Rue
This great garden bridge plant adds attractive foliage and texture along with subtle flowers that attract pollinators after woodland species flowers have passed and before the summer bloomers take hold. Yellowish-green tassels bloom open while fernlike foliage unfurls in mid-spring.
- Deer resistant
- Perfect for grouping or massing
- Thrives in moist soils and partial shade
- Spring pollinators love its subtle bloom
- Foliage and bloom add outstanding garden texture
