Anemone nemorosa ‘Vestal’
at Digging Dog

Wood Anemone

Anemone

Wind Flower

“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.

Adored by all who behold it, this charming European woodland plant boasts the choicest double Wood Anemone flowers in cultivation. Six ray petals, pure as the driven snow, encompass a fluffy white central tuft of distinctively gathered petaloid stamens. The elegant, long lasting 1 in. blooms repose upon low ferny mats of ephemeral spring leaves that show off a purplish sheen when young and disappear come summer.

Blooms late March – early May.

Size: 4" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.
