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.

|floscee, Apex, NC||Nov 03, 2009||I did not realize that they got so big. I may have to move it to another location as I have it planted close to a hydrangea|
|sue, vancouver,bc||Mar 24, 2012||Beautiful plant. How long is it dormant?|
Pretty much the standard herbaceous perennial - fades away after a hard freeze in fall, returns with the arrival of warmer weather (around early April).
|Albert Taylor||Oct 05, 2012||Is this plant poisonous to cats?|
I don't know - many plants in ranunculaceae are poisonous to some extent, so I wouldn't encourage any consumption by any animal. Most animals are pretty smart about what they eat, though. Our garden is full of plants that are poisonous to some extent, but our cats have never bothered them.
|John Wilson||Dec 16, 2015||What do I do with it in Winter? It looks like I can cut off the large stalks with seeds on top but what about the leaves, some of which have died but other haven't. Should I cut off everything?|
Yes, it is perfectly fine to cut it all back to the ground at this time. New growth will push up in spring.
