Anemonella thalictroides (rue anemone) dry shade, dainty white flower April/May, 8-10"h, native to much of the eastern half of the US

The Missouri Botanical Garden webpage states that rue anemone is a long blooming spring wildflower that is tolerant of dry soil and deep shade.

The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center webpage warns that parts of this plant are poisonous if ingested and that the sap can cause blistering or inflammation - so use caution if cutting for floral arrangements.
