A botanical curiosity for collectors
The wood anemone, Anemone nemorosa, is commonly found in our gardens and is appreciated by gardeners for its delicate spring blooms and because it is easy to grow. The species has numerous varieties with simple or double flowers in shades of blue, violet, pink or white.
The one we are presenting today presents a particular botanical flowering form, in which the petioles look more like a leaf, perhaps a reminiscence of a distant time when the leaf became a flower. These flattened petioles are called phyllodes.
Anemone nemorosa 'Virescens' is very vigorous and can quickly colonise light deciduous undergrowth in harmony with other plants (*).
We can plant it as edging alongside opulent semi-shade plants to create an attractive "chlorophyll” contrast! " Underneath Hosta, Inula, Brunnera, Astilboides, Petasite, etc.
Grow in partial shade in light, humus-rich soil, that is sufficiently moist in spring.
Maintenance: mulch with sieved compost in early spring before the foliage appears.
(*) Anemone nemorosa 'Virescens' has an early and short spring cycle and so does not compete very much with later developing perennials.
