“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. Elegant 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 elegant Chinese denizen presents delicate single white flowers with a smoky halo of deep blue-violet stamens, surrounding green centers, and mauve flushed backsides. An illuminated choice for the woodland garden, Anemone leveillei’s low mound of deeply divided and somewhat hirsute dark green leaves can be massed amid ferns and wild gingers in humus-rich soil.
Blooms April – early June.
Size: 15" – 18" high x 18" wide.
