Anemones - Windflowers

Delicate looking but sturdy, Anemones, also known as windflowers, offer pretty blooms to bridge the seasons in spring and fall. Spring blooming anemones such as Grecian windflower (Anemone blanda) and poppy anemone (Anemone coronaria), are low growing plants that are perfect for woodland and rock gardens. Tall growing Japanese anemones add color to borders and woodland gardens from late summer to late fall in shades of pink and white. These Asian natives bear large, cup-shaped blossoms on graceful stems that sway gracefully above clumps of dark green, maple-like leaves.
