“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.
Hats off to the highly acclaimed Scottish Elizabeth MacGregor Nursery for this exceptional hybrida and rupicola cross. The tallest of the Swan series, ‘Ruffled Swan’ fashions large semidouble icy-white flowers dressed with ruffled margins, frilly golden centers and violet-blue undersides. The perfect-for-cutting sterile blooms look elegant all summer long above 3-lobed green leaves that produce a trim vigorous clump, favoring free-draining, evenly moist accommodations. (PPAF)
