An ideal groundcover for partially shaded areas.

Spreads rapidly, making it an idea underplanting for perennials.
While most Anemones make you wait until Fall for their charming bloomshow, 'Madonna' gets started in the Spring! And these early blooms are not puny?they are already well-developed, boasting an impressive size and a pure, radiant white color. The blooms last until early summer, and then if you are lucky, they will rebloom in the cool fall with their cousins!

Anemone sylvestris combines delicate charm with extreme resilience. The brilliant blooms grace the garden early in the season, and once they fade they form white, wooly seed heads that hold their own appeal?especially for songbirds! And the iron constitution makes this a groundcover beyond compare!

Anemones are perfectly suited for the woodland garden, where they thrive in the bright shade and humus-rich soil, quickly spreading to fill the area. They love medium moisture, loose soils and tolerate even full shade. Though they DO look beautiful bobbing in the breeze, windflowers should actually be sheltered from storms so that their flowers last longer. They make a great underplanting for Asiatic lilies, and a wonderful addition to cutflower arrangements. Deer tend to avoid them. Zones 3 to 8.
