Parts Of The Plant

Leaves

Flowers

In the early stages of growth, I absolutely love how the club-like clusters of leaves of Early Meadow Rue are all stacked on top of one another until they separate and fan out.

The leaves after they open are spread much further apart.


The flowers have no petals but have greenish-colored, sepals sometimes tinted purple. Male and female flowers are on separate plants. The sepals are ovate to obovate or oval in shape.

On male plants, the flower filaments are the showiest part of the hanging flowers.

The flowers do not open much more than currently pictured
