Anemone - Wind Flowers- Spring Flowering

Anemone is a huge genus, mostly from the temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere, and a number of forms have evolved. Many Anemones are natural woodland or woodland edge plants and they are some of the very best shade loving plants. They contribute to the shady border from the first Anemone nemorosa in March to the last Japanese Anemone in October or November. There is often an Anemone in flower.

Spring flowering wood anemones need shade from Spring and Summer sun, and will do best in a moist humus rich soil. They love leaf mould or well composted bark but avoid maure or any rich offerings. They combine beautifully with delicate narcissi, native primroses and violets.

A very useful groundcover for tough, dry shady conditions.

A mythical thug for a shady spot where it can spread and display its fragrant white flowers in Spring. Will tolerate dry soils. It was used most effectively as ground cover in a small, shady courtyard show garden at Chelsea 2012, and can be seen in the walled garden at NT Mottisfont forming a wonderful ground cover under a fig tree.
