Thalictrum dasycarpum, known as tall meadow rue and purple meadow-rue is native to North America. Tall meadow rue is an herbaceous flowering plant with an erect habit, growing between 40–200 centimeters (16–79 in) tall. Each flowerhead comprises many flowers, borne in panicles, and is roughly pyramid in outline. It is usually dioecious, producing male and female flowers on separate plants. Tall meadow rue produces flowers between late April and late July.

Type: Hardy perennial

Location: Sun or

Hardiness zones: 3-8

Seeds per pack: 30

Germination: As with many perennials, these seeds can 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, or occasionally several months, after the warming period.
