Thalictrum thalictroides (Rue Anemone) [20 Seeds]
Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-starters only, because germination can be very slow and irregular, and they require patience. Apparently they need a warm-moist period, then a cold-moist period, to germinate. Sow them outdoors, about 1/8″ deep, as soon as you receive them, in a pot or in a holding bed. They should germinate in spring of 2023 but may take an additional year. If you want to speed things along, you could try providing a cold-moist period in your refrigerator for 2 to 3 months (starting around mid-August 2022), a warm period (75° to 80°F) for 2 to 3 months, and then another cold-moist period to encourage sprouting. Like many other early wildflowers, rue anemone is not easy from seed, but it’s worth the challenge if you want to add it to your garden and don’t have access to starter plants (which are also very difficult to find).
Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

Rue anemone (Thalictrum thalictroides, formerly Anemonella thalictroides) is an elegant little wildflower for the spring shade or woodland garden. This charming native ephemeral pops up early, with slender stems to about 8 inches tall, topped with 3-parted leaves and pure white to pink-tinged flowers through much of the spring. The plants die back to the ground in early summer. Partial to full shade; moist, humus-rich soil is ideal. These seeds are from originally wild plants growing here in Milford Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
Collected in early June 2022. Each packet will contain at least 20 seeds. Very limited quantity; one packet per person.
