Wood Ginger, Yellow Anemone, Yellow Wood Anemone


Native to European woodlands, Anemone ranunculoides (Yellow Wood Anemone) is an herbaceous perennial producing a profusion of shiny, cup-shaped, bright golden yellow flowers in early to mid spring. Resembling buttercups, the cute blossoms, 1 in. across (2.5 cm), are borne just above the attractive foliage of deeply-cut, three-lobed, toothed leaves. Yellow Wood Anemone naturalizes well and spreads quite quickly by creeping rhizomes to form colorful colonies. It makes a great floral display in the spring and goes dormant as temperatures rise in mid to late summer. A charming woodland groundcover for the partly shaded garden.
