“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.
Centered by ebullient yellow stamens, a flurry of semidouble snow-white flowers prances above trim, compact rich green leaves. The layered, lucent petals plus peppy green foundation create a fresh classic style that earns Snow Angel a front row seat in formal borders, as well as pollinator plantings, cottage gardens and even cut arrangements.
