A lovely little semi-double (despite the name) woodland Anemone. Deeply cut deep green foliage makes dense mats above which are many white flowers in spring. Not often offered in the UK.
Ideal for underplanting trees and shrubs. Flowers in April and May.
From Russia and Japan.
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 anenome available, use the search box above to explore.
