Anemone sylvestris 'Madonna' (Snowdrop Anemone)

Snowdrop Anemone 'Madonna', Snowdrop Windflower 'Madonna'


A charming late spring or early summer bloomer, Anemone sylvestris 'Madonna' (Snowdrop Anemone) is an ideal groundcover for partially shaded areas. Fragrant, extra large, cup-shaped, pure white flowers, adorned with a ring of prominent golden stamens, are borne singly on slender stems above the lush, finely cut, dark green foliage. These lovely blossoms give way to white, cottony seed heads, providing additional ornamental value. Quite resilient, this Anemone spreads by running rhizomes to form an impressive carpet where its broad, bright faces are highly appealing.

  • Rising up to 9-12 in. tall (22-30 cm) and spreading 12-18 in. (30-45 cm), this Anemone naturalizes well.
  • Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in part shade or full shade. Thrives in moist, sandy soils where it will spread more quickly (less so in clay soils).
  • Undemanding and virtually pest-free and disease-free, this Anemone is a welcomed addition to shaded gardens, rock gardens, naturalized areas, wildlife gardens or woodlands. Perfect for plantings under perennials or shrubs or as groundcover. Good as cut flowers too!
  • Deer and rabbit resistant!
  • Cut back to basal foliage after flowering to promote new blooms in summer.
  • Ingestion may cause mild stomach upset
