Family ranunculaceae
Life cycle perennial

Species anemone appreciating cooler temperatures and shade. Oh boy, it's going to be hard to satisfy this one. But my seedlings made it through a winter, and bloomed in May of their second year. Not sure if they are properly identified though: they look much like several other white-flowered anemones I've grown, and not at all like the starry open-rayed flowers I see in other photos.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

Seed for this plant is included on my seed trade list
