Anemone sylvestris Windflower
An ideal groundcover for partially shaded areas.

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.
