Here is a decidious woodlot favorite. The tiny Rue Anemone, Thalictum thalictoides is fairly common east of the Mississippi, excluding Florida. It is a regular occurence in Ohio. Blooming from March on until June, the delicate umbelliform flower was once known as Anemonella, but now most botanist categorize the leaflets, fruits and flowers more like Thalicatrum. Whatever it is called, Rue Anemone with its tiny mitten like leaflets is a welcome sight amidst early spring shoots of greenery.
