Anemone 'Ruffled Swan'

 

Windflower 'Ruffled Swan'

Many species of anemone can be found in gardens and often as houseplants. They provide colour throughout the season from early Spring into Autumn. There are hundreds of cultivars to suit most growing conditions. Among the best known summer anemones is A. coronaria, a tuberous-rooted plant, with divided leaves, and large poppy-like blossoms. There are also double-flowered varieties, alpine varieties, varieties for hot dry conditions and even for woodland settings. 'Ruffled Swan' bears semi-double flowers, white with lilac-blue undersides, around 9cm. dia. in Summer and into Autumn
