Anemone sylvestris Windflower
An ideal groundcover for partially shaded areas.
Anemone sylvestris grows easily in average, medium-moisture, well-drained soil in part shade, even tolerating full shade. It spreads readily in loose soils (less so in clay soils), making an ideal under-planting for perennials such as Asiatic Lilies. It's perfect for naturalized areas or wild gardens, and its charming blooms make wonderful additions to cutflower arrangements. Also known as Snowdrop anemone or Snowdrop windflower, this adaptable little plant tends to be undesirable to deer, meaning it's likely to reach its full lovely potential in the shady garden!
