This Anemone has been instantly popular everywhere it has been introduced, and we’re sure you’re going to love it too. Unlike the typical Japanese hybrids that only bloom in fall, this Anemone rupicola hybrid blooms from late spring until frost with continuous prolific bloom. Huge 3-3½” white flowers will delight you with their lilac-blue bands on the backside. These bands will be a main feature as the flowers close at night.
WILD SWAN™ was selected from a batch of Anemones by Elizabeth MacGregor of Scotland, a plant enthusiast and owner of Elizabeth MacGregor Nursery. She selected WILD SWAN™ for its vigor and long flowering performance.
A staple item for late summer and fall borders, Japanese Anenomes are graceful plants with beautiful, satiny flowers borne on tall stems above a clump of shorter basal foliage. Watching them sway in the breeze brings a feeling of calm and peace to the garden. Since they are a bit late to rise in the spring, they make an ideal cover for the dying foliage of spring bulbs.
