Anemone rivularis ‘Glacier’
at Digging Dog

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.

Native to the far reaches of Himalaya, India and Ceylon, this Anemone quickly emerges in the spring as an attractive basal clump of long-petioled deep green trilobed leaves. Red-tinged stems–silky, stiff, arching and branched–deliver snow white droves of large, open saucer-shaped flowers. Violet-blue anthers and backsides with dusty green and gun-metal blue streaks enhance the exquisite blooms, while spiky green seed heads gathered in ornamental clusters provide autumn allure. Unparalleled in drifts, ‘Glacier’ insists on cool, moist humus-rich soil.

Blooms June–August.

Size: 16"–20" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 4.
