Anemone sylvestris

Common Name: Snowdrop Anemone

A delightful late spring bloomer with delicate charm and an iron constitution. Pure white flowers, measuring nearly 2 in. across, are borne singly on bare stems above the attractive dark green, divided foliage. For added ornamental value, the lovely blossoms leave behind interesting white, wooly seed heads as they fade.

This species of anenome spreads by running rhizomes, making it a choice groundcover for partially shaded areas. It will grow in any type of soil, but will spread more quickly in loose, sandy loam.
