U.S. native featuring columbine-like foliage with bright white flowers in early spring. The plant is very similar to Anemone thalictroides. I'm tickled that it has chosen to persist in our garden for the past several seasons – that means that the section of our back yard island that I've fancifully named "the woodland garden" actually has some of the characteristics required to keep these kinds of plants happy.

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