Anemone patens var. wolfgangiana - Pasque Flower

Comming Soon
  • Pasqueflower is one of the first flowers to emerge and bloom in the spring, with its delicate lavender blooms appearing before the leaves. The leaves are very textured, hairy and soft looking - they remain well into the summer months. Another interesting feature is the spiky silvery seedheads that also remain showy for a long period until dried and dispersed by the winid.

    This characteristic spring bloomer is well known and loved as a garden plant. Its other common names include: May Day Flower, Meadow Anemone, Easter Flower, or Wind Flower. It is a member of the Buttercup (Ranunculaceae) family.
