Enemion biternatum (False Rue Anemone) [15 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds only for patient gardeners who are experienced with challenging perennial seeds. Sow the entire packet (seeds and vermiculite) as soon as it arrives, just covering the seeds with growing medium. Set the pot outdoors and keep it moist so the seeds can germinate when conditions are right (likely the following spring). Be aware that sprouting can be slow and irregular.

Note that this information will not be on the seed packet you receive.

As you may guess from the common name, false rue anemone (Enemion biternatum, formerly Isopyrum biternatum) looks much like the true rue anemone (Thalictrum thalictroides). It grows in clumps of deeply lobed leaflets on slender, 5- to 8-inch-tall stems that are tipped in late winter or early spring with bright white blooms that have five petal-like sepals. This spring ephemeral dies back to the ground in early summer, returning again the following spring from its tuberous roots. False rue anemone thrives in partial shade and rich, somewhat moist soil. It is native to eastern North America. Perennial; Zones 3 to 8.

Collected in early June 2023. At least 15 seeds, packed with moist vermiculite. Unknown ecotype. Shipping to US addresses only.
