Family ranunculaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z4-8)
Flowers soft pink (summer)
Size 4'

Earliest of the summer-season anemones to bloom in our garden. This is a tall variety - the mound of handsome lobed foliage comes up to 3-4', with the flowers held above. The flowers have every so slightly purplish white petals and more pronounced purple coloring to the undersides, and a tidy ring of yellow anthers in the center. They keep on coming for a long time, starting in July. The plants get a little floppy toward the end of its bloom period, and would probably benefit from a little staking (something we're not good at around here).

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