|Spent flowers look cool, albeit not much like thimbles in my book. |
Wildflower, whose flowers aren't nearly as showy as those of most other anemones I've grown. Still, I like this plant - fairly tidy and unassuming, and the post-flowering stages are interesting. There were nice purple undersides of leaves on my seedling plant, but I haven't noticed that feature on mature plants.

This is another one of those plants that brings a smile to my face in the earliest weeks in the garden season – not for its flowers, which are still a few months away, but for its vigorous outcropping of tidy leaves, attractively cut with just a hint of purple.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
