Buy Anemone sylvestris snowdrop anemone: Delicate white flowers in spring

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 but well drained, humus-rich soil. Likes neutral or alkaline soils
  • Rate of growth: fast
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A lovely little anemone which forms a mound of deeply cut foliage, topped with  nodding white flowers with yellow centres in late spring. The plant gets its common name from the way the flower buds emerge on bent stems, so they hang like snowdrops. Then they straighten up and face outwards as the flowers start to open. The petals catch the breeze, making them look a little like butterflies, and they will grow to form open cup shapes up to 7cm across. They are scented and are good for cutting, but if you leave them on, they will be followed by white woolly seedheads. Find the right spot for them and they will naturalise and spread into large clumps.

  • Garden care: Apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring. Cut back to just above ground level if they start to look messy and they will quickly rejuvenate. Where necessary lift and divide congested clumps in early spring.

Notes on Anemone sylvestris

"Ideal for edging north-facing borders and bed where you can appreciate its subtle fragrance as you pass"

Good but better for sun

These little flowers added a nice geranium type foliage to my beds and grew well. I don't think they enjoyed being on a northfacing border, looking a bit straggly at times. I don't think this is a reflection on the quality of the plants though and will just move them to a new site in spring.

Plant was well packed, well groiwn and burst into flower soon after planting. It has established itself well and is almost certain to over-winter

This is a perennial, but last year it didn't flower at all despite being where I have had them in the past. Therefore disappointed
