“The floure never openth it selfe, but when the wynde bloweth,” wrote William Turner, in A New Herbal (1560). In our garden, however, we enjoy the buttercup-shaped flowers in any weather, windy or not. Tasteful and deceptively delicate looking, Anemone is also tough and undemanding. Most will multiply readily in rich sandy loam, and are perfect for naturalizing in a woodland setting.
This exquisite Chinese denizen presents refined single white flowers with a smoky halo of deep blue-violet stamens, which surround green centers, and mauve-flushed backsides. An illuminated choice for shady alcoves, Anemone leveillei’s low mound of deeply palmate and hirsute dark green leaves can be massed amid ferns and wild gingers in humus-enriched soil.
