Description from White Flower Farm
This heirloom (about 1858) is still tops for its vigorous growth and solid good looks. The crisp formality of white blooms with golden centers is matched by dark green foliage that remains attractive all season. Makes a fine addition to the front of a shrub border, where its blooms will add sparkle.
Anemones thrive in full sun or partial shade (required in the South and the warmer areas of Zone 9 in the West) and deep, rich, moist soil. Once established (which may take a year or two), they will fill in any available space, though these plants are far too charming to be called invasive.
