Spreading perennial, more substantial than other white species anemones (such as A. baldensis) we've grown. Reportedly reblooms in fall occasionally (I haven't observed this yet). The buds nod sweetly, but when the flowers open, they look boldly upward.

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