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.

An incredibly useful Geranium, a great candidate for underplanting in shaded and wooded spots. Wonderful for natural or semi wild planting schemes.

Alchemilla mollis AGM

Alchemilla mollis AGM

5.25 (2 or fewer items) 4.80 (3 or more items)

Common as muck but brilliant for a tough spot. Plumes of lime green/yellow flowers in Summer. Wonderful for flower arranging and the leaves look magical with water droplets sitting on them. Very dry shade tolerant and resistant to deer and rabbits, plus the occasional football or foot.

Often used at the front of borders and complementing other flowering perennials (it looks stunning when planted with Geranium 'Rozanne'), Alchemilla can also be used most effectively to create an area of differing foliage colours and textures - it combines beautifully with small to medium sized ferns.

It will mildly seed around but it is just too useful to ignore! Cutting foliage and faded flower stems back in mid/late summer will produce a second flush of leaves and the odd flower.
