Canada Anemone Flower

The Canada anemone flower is an easy to maintain, dependable and hardy perennial ground cover that produces lovely white buttercup flowers. Because of its rapid growth and adaptability, it would be an ideal choice for those hard-to-grow open spaces in your garden. One of the reasons it makes a great ground cover is because it is an aggressive spreader.

As a summer bloomer, this showy wildflower is perfect for naturalizing in moist areas of a wildflower or native plant garden. In nature, it is found along stream banks, in wet woods, and in moist meadows. It may also be grown near streams, ponds, or water gardens.
