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.
||false rue anemone
||ordinary garden soil (not too dry)
|Seed ripens||early June|
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

|John Springer||Mar 21, 2018||Congratulations on your woodland habitat. Is it still preserved I wonder?
I just saw Enemion occidentale on hike last weekend near Redding CA.|
I truly don't know how my woodland is doing – I haven't seen it since leaving it behind two years ago. Nothing remotely like a woodland in my current garden.
- Received moist-packed seed from NARGS '10/'11 exchange; 7 had germinated prior to arrival and were promptly potted up (4 survived). No further germination occurred at room temperature in 16d.
