Anemone canadensis has lovely 2” white flowers with numerous yellow stamens that bloom on erect stems above strongly divided slightly shiny foliage. Anemone canadensis is a vigorous rhizomatous spreader. It flowers from mid-spring to early summer.
Also called Meadow Anemone or Windflower, it is native from the northeastern U.S. to the Rockies and is naturally found in moist meadows and thickets.
Anemone canadensis grows best in light shade and organic, rich soil, but also tolerates clay soil. Sometimes called Canada Anemone, it requires more moisture in full sun.
