Anemone rupicola, Rock Anemone: Found growing at fairly high altitudes from Afghanistan through the Himalaya region into SW China. The showy, 5 – 7.5cm wide, white flowers have five sepals that are flushed violet or pink on their reverse sides. The flowers sit above the essentially stemless basal leaves which are three-lobed with sharply toothed segments and have a slightly rough texture. The plant’s fibrous root system spreads underground to form a colony which helps it hold its own in its native rocky meadows. The flowers are produced from late spring to early summer and will light up a dreary shaded spot for weeks. Enjoys full sun to part shade in moist, well drained soil. 30cm H x 60cm W.
