Anemone canadensis - Canada Anemone

Comming Soon
  • Canada Anemone is a great plant for the right place - as this plant will spread out if given room, it should only be planted with robust perrenials or among taller plants. Its rhizomatous nature will out compete small less aggressive plent species. This Anemone species prefers moist soils but will do well in dryer sites as well and won't spread out as much with less moisture. It can be used as a groundcover in a mow zone and is great for areas that you want to naturalize.
