Anemone cylindrica

Anemone cylindrica
Common name thimbleweed
Family ranunculaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers white
Size 12-24"
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes well-drained soil, drought-tolerant
Seed ripensmid-July

The second thimbleweed we're trying (the first being A. virginiana). They differ in their leaf shape, A. cylindrica having less dentation along the margins, and some palmate leaves. This one is definitely a wildflower, not as refined or showy as many of its windflower sisters. I like the "thimbles" (the elongated seedheads that from immediately after flowering) better than the smallish white flowers themselves.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
