RUE ANEMONE Anemonella thalictroides
Thalictrum thalictroides, synonym Anemonella thalictroides, the rue-anemone, is a herbaceous perennial native to woodland in eastern North America. It has pink or white flowers surrounded by a whorl of leaflets and blooms in spring. This pack includes many pink-flower seeds.
Thalictrum thalictroides grows from tuberous roots, is upright, up to 30cm (12 in) tall stems that end with flowers. It flowers in spring.
Ideal for woodland garden, plants form drifts over time. Plant in a d or partly d location, under trees, or on the north side of a building.
These seeds are rare, and are in limited supply.

Germination: As with many perennial seeds, these seeds benefit from a period of moist cold to help them begin to grow. This is done by giving them a cold 'winter' period (artificial or natural), and then a warming to simulate 'spring', and time to grow! Here's how this can be done:
Obtain a planting container that has holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Place the seeds just under the surface of your growing medium, and water. Place your container in a cold area (but not freezing, perhaps a refrigerator) for 4-6 weeks. Once the cold period is completed, place the container at room temperature for them to germinate. Be sure to keep the soil moist during this entire germination period. Seedlings will sprout a few weeks after the warming period. We have grown these seeds ourselves using this refrigeration method, with high germination results.
