Anemone tomentosa 'Robustissima'

Anemone tomentosa 'Robustissima'

Nice spreading anemone, forming a large mound of attractively cut foliage with plenty of flowers in late summer. Some sources say it gets to 4ft tall, but ours certainly don't top 2 ft. In our garden it doesn't get out of hand, although we dig some out every year to keep it in check.

Synonym(s) Anemone vitifolia
Common name grape-leaf anemone
Family ranunculaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z3-8)
Flowers pink (summer)

Cultural notes ordinary garden soil

grape-leaf anemone

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