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.
