The thalictrum has1 leaves like those of coriander, only somewhat more unctuous, and a stem resembling that of the poppy.2 It is found growing everywhere, in champaign localities more particularly. The leaves, applied with honey, heal ulcers.

1 Identified by Fée and Desfontaines with the Thalictrum minus of Linnæus, the Small meadow rue. Littré gives the Thalictrum flavum of Linnæus, the Common meadow rue.

2 In its colour.
