“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.
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.
Anemone sylvestris (P-1640)

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.
