HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Direct sow in late fall, planting just below the surface of the soil. For spring planting, mix the seeds with moist sand and store in the refrigerator for 60 days before planting. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination.

Growing: As the plants grow, keep the soil consistently moist; this plant loves moisture, and it can tolerate wet soil much better than drought. This plant attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.

Harvesting: These blossoms do not perform well as cut flowers, and are best enjoyed outdoors.

Seed Saving: As the flower spike fades, small pods will form that eventually open and release their seeds. As soon as the pods open, shake them over a container to remove the seed; watch them carefully to prevent loss, since the seeds can easily be blown away by the wind. Store the seed in a cool, dry place.

Named for its lovely purple stems, this unique plant often grows in moist woodland soil. The genus name "Thalictrum" dates back to Dioscorides, an ancient Greek doctor known for his influential work Materia Medica. Dioscorides gave this name to plant families with divided leaves. The species name "dasycarpum" comes from the Latin words for "hairy fruited," referring to the distinctive seeds of the plant.
