Plant Overview

An old and unusual version of our native wood anemone, having green tips to the white petals. The flowers are also surrounded by green bracts giving the flowers the effect of wearing a green ruff.

Ferny green basal foliage. Flowers in April and May.

Good for underplanting trees and shrubs, woodland gardens and shady borders. Will slowly colonise an area to create a carpet. Drought resistant when established.

You can speed up colonisation by dividing the rhizomes in spring or autumn.

Height: 15cm

Common name(s): Wood Anemone


The sight of a carpet of white stars on a sunny day is a true sign that spring has sprung. The spring flowers are a useful source of food for sleepy foraging bees. Wood Anemones look best on-masse so if possible, plant several in a clump and for the first couple of years increase the collection for free by dividing the rhizomes.

Any shady spot will support a happy colony of Anemone, so even if you have a city garden, you can plant them in a border that's shaded by a building. Add a bucket or two of leaf-mould to the soil before planting and don't add any fertiliser.

We have several varieties of anemone available, use the search box above to explore.

Please note that depending on the time of year, anemones may have been recently repotted when you receive them. When not in leaf these plants are dormant as small rhizomes under the soil.

All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow almost everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Our prices include VAT at 20%.
