Description: This 6 foot beauty may be the most graceful plant that you encounter in a medium-wet prairie or savanna.  The stems are distinctly purple, thus the name, and strong to hold up to high winds.  Like its smaller, fern-like woodland cousin, Thalictrum dioicum (early meadow rue) purple meadow rue politely displays its delicate, yellow, tassle-like flowers in late spring. Because Purple Meadow Rue is dioecious, individual plants produce either all male (staminate) flowers or all female (pistillate) flowers. Cross-pollination is by wind.
