Anemone palmata

Common name yellow anemone
Family ranunculaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z6)
Flowers yellow (late spring)
Size 12"
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes well drained soil
Seed ripenslate June

Saucer-shaped yellow flowers, sometimes tinged with red, held on stems above glossy deep green, somewhat succulent leaves.Native to the Iberian peninsula in Europe. Reportedly difficult to overwinter outside of its preferred Mediterranean climate, but at least some of our seedlings got through their first winter here, which was an unfavorably cold and wet one.

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
