Wild Swan Anemone is like a graceful dancer in delicate shades of creamy white and pale lavender. With so many fall colors of vibrant orange, yellow and pink, it’s refreshing to have a performer in soft white twirl across the stage. Winner of the 2011 Plant of the Year award at the Chelsea Flower Show, Wild Swan grows in zones 6-8 in part shade to sun. It is a prolific bloomer, going from June until frost and makes a great cutting flower. The word anemone means ‘daughter of the wind’ giving this plant its common name of windflower. A beautiful dancer in the wind.

Lovely. I don’t know what sort my Japanese Anemone is, but it has been blooming since July and is so pretty even though it tends to fall over if it gets rained on.
I love the white with the lavender
This is beautiful and I’m not familiar w this plant. Is it like a Japanese anemone or more like the anemone from the bulb form? If it grows in zone 6, I could get it! I wonder if there are some mail orders that have it?
It says zones 6-8, you can find all the details on the Monrovia website. I just bought two today for a client! Kind of pricey, $16 for a 10″.
