Anemone parviflora, Small-flowered Anemone

Anemone parviflora

Small-flowered Anemone

  • Consistently moist areas, including gravely streambanks
  • Full sun
  • 6 to 10” tall, 6” to 8” spread
  • Early summer blooming, with sporadic reblooming
  • Native to Ontario, open meadow and rock garden settings

This small Anemone is a new introduction to the spaces I tend, grown from seeds from the Ottawa Wildflower Seed Library.

Described as a sub-arctic or alpine species and as having a preference for area with consistently available moisture, such as stream banks by the Missouri Botanical Garden, I suspect that these would co-exist well with Campanula rotundifolia and other small, clumping species that prefer not to be crowded by rambunctious neighbours.

While it rarely comes up, I do reserve the right to limit plant quantities, mostly to help ensure that as many native plant gardens as possible become a reality
