“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. Tasteful 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.
Brilliant citrine-yellow petals swirl around golden stamens, their sunny coloration rare for an Anemone. Often tinged red on the outside, the good-sized, saucer-shaped flowers are presented on slender, leafless 6 in. stems above a handsome basal mat of glossy deep green foliage. A southwest European native, this spreading Anemone prefers a sunny, well drained bank where its cheerful blooms can be paired with blue flowering Nepeta reichenbachiana.
