Anemone canadensisAlso known as:
Anemone canadensis is a robust species with ornamental and very attractive deeply lobed foliage. It is a profuse bloomer for a period of up to 1 1/2 months, during mid-spring through early summer. At up to 2" across, flowers are larger than most others in the genus. They are pure white with a yellowish center, and sit atop the foliage at a height of 18".
Canadian anemone is very easy to grow, and can even be aggressive under very favorable conditions. It is not particular about soil, and will adapt to any light condition other than full shade. It requires a fair amount of moisture, especially if grown in a sunny location. It is perfect for a transitional area, such as a woodland border, and will create a formidable ground cover if planted en masse. A very cold hardy species. Zones 3-7
Can be propagated by seed. The root system is rhizomatous and dense. Very easy to propagate by clump division or root cuttings.
It will attract early season pollinators and small bees. Fresh foliage contains blistering agents, making the plants resistant to deer and other browsing mammals.
