Three-Leaved Anemone, Anemonoides trifolia


Anemone trifolia (Three-Leaved Anemone) is a dwarf herbaceous perennial producing star-shaped, single, white (rarely pale pink or pale bluish) flowers, 1 in. across (2-4 cm), in mid to late spring. The blossoms feature 5-9 elliptical tepals and a ring of white or pale blue anthers. They are borne on short upright stems and rise above the finely cut foliage. The leaves are divided into three lanceolate leaflets and form a single whorl of three leaves per stem. Anemone trifolia spreads by creeping rhizomes and tends to form a dense carpet in shaded areas where its luminous, bright faces are highly appealing.

  • Grows up 4-6 in. tall (10-15 cm).This Anemone naturalizes well and will gradually spread into colorful colonies.
  • Performs best in average, humus-rich, moist, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade.
  • This Anemone is a welcomed addition to borders, under trees and large shrubs, or in woodlands.
  • No serious pest or disease issues. Deer and rabbit resistant.
  • Native to southern and central Europe, from Portugal and Spain east to Hungary, and locally north to Finland, where one small population occurs.
