Anemonopsis macrophylla

False Anemone

Categories: Wildflower

A refined shade plant that would grace any plant connoisseur's garden yet is perfectly happy to hang with us average Joes. Leaves evoking Anemone and pendant flowers combining pastels and lavenders in an understated parasol of exquisite design and dimension. A plant wasted on the masses so let's keep it to ourselves. It has been pleasingly tough and durable in our shade garden.

sight” category.
