Anemone blanda is a spreading, tuberous-rooted perennial that produces charming, daisy-like flowers with yellow centers. Anemone blanda creates an attractive groundcover with its delightful blooms and fern-like foliage. Foliage disappears soon after flowering. Best planted en mass in moist but well draining soil. After flowering, allow foliage to remain so the plant can photosynthesize for next year's flowers.
