Design Ideas: This unique anemone is a forest floor dweller and therefore belongs beneath tree canopies in gardens. Blend with ferns and other understory species to create interesting shade garden floral effects. Shade tolerance makes it an excellent choice for sideyards and city gardens dominated by tall buildings.

Grows easily in average, well-drained soils. Tends to spread in loose soils; less in clay soils. Best in dappled shade. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. For a neat appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.


Linnaeus named this genus for a mythological Greek goddess closely associated with the flowers in Old World folklore.
