Anemone lesseri

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.

This lovely jewel-box-like hybrid affords cupped carmine-red blooms, festooned with spry yellow anthers above an attractive non-aggressive bed of low growing ferny green foliage. Parented by Anemone multifida and Anemone sylvestris, Anemone x lesseri’s fine cut palmately lobed leaves and uniquely colored up-facing flowers make compelling additions to the rockery, an open woodland planting or a borderís front lines. Appreciative of morning light accompanied by dappled afternoon shade on hot days, its dwarf habit requires minimal care, resists those meddlesome deer and prospers in moist well-drained organic-rich soil.

Blooms June.

Size: 12"–15" high x 9"–12" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Customer Comment:

“I just visited Digging Dog Nursery over the weekend, and was very impressed, both by their plants and their beautifully landscaped surroundings. They have a wide range of plants (many which you don't see elsewhere) and everything was healthy, vigorous and picture perfect. The word which comes to mind is "cherished." I bought a few of these beauties and they are blooming already!”
