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.

Anemone sylvestris full sun  partial shade

With Old World allure, its sweet smelling bounty of yellow-eyed, satiny white blossoms has been lighting up gardens for over 400 years. Atop straight 18 in. stems, delicate cup-shaped single flowers offer a repeat bloom come fall, and later develop decorative cottonlike seed heads. Deeply cut, palmate green leaves form a lustrous dense ground cover that naturalizes easily in loamy soil and bright shade.

Amenable to full sun where its cool and full shade where its warm, this ethereal beauty detests desert heat, can accompany early flowering spring bulbs and may periodically need its vigorous rhizomes curbed.

Blooms April – June & September.

Size: 12"–18" high x 12"–18" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
