Thalictrum thalictroides – Rue Anemone  

Has beautiful White flowers in the Spring. Stays relatively short around 8 inches or so. The foliage is a light green and resembles a columbine or clover leaf. Give it rich organic soil that is moist but well drained. Give it a couple of years to get established and it will start to spread into very nice clump. Do not cover with heavy mulch use light leaf cover or pine needles when mulching. Best to leave them alone once established as the roots are very tiny and hard to find if you try to dig them up and move them around unless you dig a root ball with them.

TRILLIUMS

Some General Information About Growing Trilliums

Trilliums are the most sought after plant for shade gardens. They bloom in the Spring and come in several different colors. They need organic moist but well drained soil and shade, they can take a little early morning sun in cooler climates but not too much as they will burn out quickly. The foliage will last until late Summer under normal conditions, if they get too wet or dry they may go dormant a little earlier. As far as spreading they are very slow, you may see large patches in the wild but they have been there for many years so be patient, some spread more quickly than others. See the description under each variety for more information in this. The plants we ship you whether in be in a pot or bare root are mature size tubers and have bloomed for us here at the Nursery. With that said they should bloom for you the first season after you plant them but we cannot guarantee this. Sometimes they will go through transplant shock and it may delay the flower for a year. They are very hardy as a whole but sometimes a bit temperamental. These are definitely a must for every shade garden, we recommend planting them in groups of 3 or more.
