False Rue Anemone

Isopyrum biternatum


False Rue Anemone has white flowers that looks a lot like true Rue Anemone (Thalictrum thalictroides). However, the false rue always has only 5 petals while rue has a variable number from 6 to 12. The leaves of false rue are much more deeply divided. The leaves are compound and are divided into 3 groups. Each group has 3 leaflets and each leaflet has 3 lobes. Flower stems divide with each branch having a flower. False Rue bloom about the same time as Rue, and sometimes in the same area .
