When I bought these white anemones a couple of years ago I didn't know anything about them. But, they have been a pleasant surprise. My original plant is thriving, and had grown greatly. If you have limited garden space, you might have to watch them so they don't spread out too much. Anemone are one of the first flowers of the spring, (at least here in zone 5) and have been blooming for at least a month. Even with the rain and wind, they've held up very well, (unlike my peonies and poppies). And, they make excellent cut flowers. What's blooming in your garden today?
