9cm pot £8.99

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, fertile, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: April to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This gorgeous anemone looks wonderful when planted in big, naturalised swathes, where there is a reliable amount of moisture. It forms a low, softly hairy mound of foliage, which in late spring and early summer is topped with elegant, lilac-backed white flowers that have a central cluster of deep purple-blue anthers. Happiest in a sunny spot, it can also be grown in lightly dappled shade.

  • Garden care: Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring. Avoid moving the plant since it resents disturbance. Where necessary lift and divide congested clumps in early spring.
