Anemone canadensis (Meadow Anemone) is an herbaceous perennial producing masses of upward-facing, brilliant white flowers, 2 in. wide (5 cm), adorned with a bouquet of contrasting yellow stamens. Blooming in mid spring to early summer, they are borne atop erect hairy flowering stems clothed with broad, deeply cut and sharply-toothed leaves. Meadow Anemone spreads vigorously from underground rhizomes and will gradually form large colonies. A vigorous groundcover for a difficult wet spot.

  • Easily grown in average, medium to wet soils in full sun or part shade.
  • Undemanding, this Anemone is a welcomed addition to prairies and meadows and can be near streams, ponds or water gardens.
  • Generally pest and disease free. Keep an eye out for leaf spot, downy mildew, powdery mildew, rust, caterpillars, flea beetles, and slugs. Deer resistant.
  • Propagate by division.
  • Native to North America.
