Early Meadowrue features dainty white and gold flower tassels suspended above a lacy blue-green foliage in early spring. One of the earliest to emerge on the woodland scene, the plants have good form all season and provide an attractive backdrop for other perennials. Early Meadowrue is also a good choice to fill-in the spaces where spring ephemerals go dormant. Growing up to 2 feet tall it can serve as a focal point in the woodland garden and will standout well when surrounded by low plants with simple foliage such as Wild Ginger, Starry Solomon's Plume, Big Leaf Aster and Golden Star, Pennsylvania or Plantain Leaved Sedge.

Growing best in rich moist, well-drained soil, Thalictrum dioicum prefers light shade and dappled sunlight. As the name 'diocum' suggests, male and female flowers occur on separate plants. Male flowers are greenish-white with yellowish stamens. Female flowers are greenish-white with purplish pistils.
