The Stunning Anemone 'Wild Swan'

Awarded Chelsea 2011 Plant of the Year', Anemone 'Wild Swan' is a stunning  introduction by Elizabeth MacGregor. Large white flowers 7 to 9 cm across, have a distinct blue banding on the reverse and are held above attractive green foliage. Opening throughout the day, the flowers close to bells with a beautiful nodding habit in the evening and early morning. Exceptionally long flowering season, from early June through summer and autumn. Anemone Wild Swan also makes a good cut flower.

Anemone wild swan has a vigorous habit although it is non invasive, and does best in a rich, fertile soil and semi-shade.
Later flowering benefits from removal of spent flower stems. Ht 45-60cm.
