Anemone multifida (Pacific Anemone)

Pacific Anemone, Red Windflower, Early Thimbleweed, Cut-leaf Anemone


Anemone multifida (Pacific Anemone) is a charming herbaceous perennial forming loose clumps of slender, silky stems clad with long-petioled, finely divided downy leaves. In late spring to late summer, solitary, silky, poppy-like flowers, 1 in. across (2.5 cm), greenish, yellowish or purplish outside, yellowish-white inside, appear for several weeks atop the stems. The blossoms are followed by silky, pinkish seedheads used by humminbgirds to build their nests. Easy to grow, this North American species is a great, little anemone for the rock garden or the front of the border. Ideal for growing in shady spots such as woodlands, or north-facing gardens.

  • Growing up to 6-20 in. tall (15-50 cm) and 24 in. wide (60 cm).
  • A part shade lover, this anemone is easily grown in moist, gravelly, calcareous, well-drained soils.
  • Perfect for beds and borders, cottage gardens, prairie gardens, wildflower gardens.
  • No serious pest or disease issues.
  • Propagate from seed sown in fall or early spring. Older plants can be divided in spring.
  • Native to North America.
