An ideal groundcover for partially shaded areas.

Spreads rapidly, making it an idea underplanting for perennials.
An ideal groundcover for partially shaded areas, Anemone sylvestris blooms in late spring, combining delicate charm with extreme resilience. Its glistening white, cup-shaped, lightly fragrant blooms have yellow anthers in the center that provide a lovely splash of color against the brilliant, clean petals. Measuring nearly 2" across, they appear singly on bare stems above dark green, divided leaves. And once the blossoms fade from atop the 18" stems, you're rewarded with fascinating white, woolly seed heads!

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!

I love to work with flowers and want my beds to look nice all ye from PA wrote (May 14, 2012):
I bought two of these plants last sprimg to fill in a bare sunny spot in a small garden. They bloomed beautifully this spring; pure white flowers were held high above a mound of green perfectly notched leaves. I plan to plant more of them this fall. Carol B.
