Meadow-Rue, Thalictrum, photo © by Michael Plagens

Along a shady trail in Mt. Kenya Forest, Kirinyaga, Kenya, Africa. 2 June 2017.

In the mountaineous areas of Kenya where moisture is in good supply and where moist soil gets some sunlight, Meadow-Rue, more familiar in northern latitudes, can be found. Even when the flowers, which are not conspicuous, are absent, the unique, compound leaves make this herbaceous plant recognizable.

Ranunculaceae -- Buttercup Family
