“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, Anemone is also tough and undemanding. Most will multiply readily in rich sandy loam, and are perfect for naturalizing in a woodland setting.
This little-known endearing Anemone hosts uniquely etched, oval-shaped pale green buds and dainty, cupped, 1 in. wide soft yellow flowers followed by decorative, fluffy white seed heads on erect leafy stems. The appealing, somewhat reflective evergreen mound of lobed, fine-hewn deep green foliage is easily grown and well-suited for the front of a border with good drainage and moderate water.
Size: 12" high x 10" wide.
