Description Fine Print
 
Anemone blanda 'Violet Star' is a lovely and uncommon Grecian windflower or Balkan anemone with lavender flowers with white petal bases around yellow centres. This species is a charming woodland groundcover that produces cute little 2+ inch wide flowers in early spring above nicely dissected foliage. It is similar to A. nemorosa but the leaves are thicker and darker green, the flowers are larger and have more petals, and it can be grown in full sun if the soil has good moisture. Plant them around dark flowered hellebores or other bulbs to help show them off against the dark soil or as an ephemeral groundcover beneath deciduous trees and shrubs. They will go dormant in summer. Photo: Wikipedia.
