Anemonella thalictroides 'Rosea'

A. thalictroides is the only species in this genus. It is native to woodlands in eastern North America. Its common name “rue anemone” is derived from the anemone-like form of its flowers, which are pale pink or white and bloom in spring and early summer, and its meadow rue-like foliage, which is ferny and bluish green. Anemonella eventually forms clumps 1 foot across and is pretty in a woodland garden, as underplanting for shrubs, or in a shady rock garden.

Noteworthy CharacteristicsU.S. native.

PropagationAs soon as seed is ripe, sow in containers in a cold frame. Divide young plants in early spring.
