Early Meadow Rue
Early Meadow Rue is a shade garden plant that is a wonderful addition to any garden. Its delicate green fern-like foliage is present from spring through fall. The greenish-yellow flowers look like little tassels and bloom in early spring when the leaves have not quite opened and the canopy of the trees above is not yet shading the woodland floor. The male flowers of Early Meadow Rue are more showy than the female flowers; this is primarily because the anthers of the male flowers are yellow, while the styles of the female flowers are dull-colored.
