A small and dainty woodland plant. The flowers rise above the foliage in late April into May creating a nice little spring bouquet. The petal like sepals are in counts of 5 to 10 with lots of yellow stamens in the center.
They like a moist woodland soil and look great on a shady bank They are small but tough and will self-seed. The foliage is like that of meadow rue and is bright green in color. The plant grows 6 to 8 inches tall and forms a fine clump.
Rue anemone is a welcome sight in the spring. The clean white flowers brighten up the area and are very charming. They look great with merry bells, Virginia bluebells, violets, and blue cohosh.
