Meadow Rue (Thalictrum)

 Do not Feed
  • Common Name: Meadow Rue (Thalictrum)
  • Latin Name: Thalictrum spp.
  • Family Name: Ranunculaceae
The foliage of many species of Meadow Rue (for example Thalictrum aquilegifolium), have foliage that resembles the Aquilegia and, like the Aquilegia, Meadow Rue is now cultivated for the garden.  It is a member of the buttercup family, and with no research available on its suitability for the tortoise diet, the TTT recommends that it should not be offered.  

The Meadow Rue is unrelated to the true Rues of the family Rutaceae.  See Rue.
