Description:

This variety forms a dense clump of deep green foliage in spring, then produces lovely, large white poppy-like flowers with lavender reverses, on tall stems all season; very pretty when massed in the garden or along borders; does not re-seed

Ornamental Features

Wild Swan™ Anemone is smothered in stunning white buttercup flowers with gold eyes and a lavender reverse at the ends of the stems from late spring to early fall. The flowers are excellent for cutting. Its ferny leaves remain dark green in color throughout the season. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

Landscape Attributes

Wild Swan™ Anemone is a dense herbaceous perennial with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other garden plants with less refined foliage.

This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and is best cleaned up in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season. It is a good choice for attracting bees and butterflies to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Wild Swan™ Anemone is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Mass Planting
  • General Garden Use

Planting & Growing

Wild Swan™ Anemone will grow to be about 14 inches tall at maturity extending to 20 inches tall with the flowers, with a spread of 16 inches. Its foliage tends to remain dense right to the ground, not requiring facer plants in front. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years. As this plant tends to go dormant in summer, it is best interplanted with late-season bloomers to hide the dying foliage.

This plant does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid. It can be propagated by division; however, as a cultivated variety, be aware that it may be subject to certain restrictions or prohibitions on propagation.
