Early Meadow Rue
Early Meadow Rue is a native perennial plant that grows in some parts of Virginia. It is in the buttercup family and blooms in early to mid-spring, growing to be between one and three feet tall. The scientific species name dioicum is Greek for "two households" and reflects that it is dioecious, which means that the male and female flowers are on separate plants. The male produces more showy flowers than the female and blooms early in the spring.
