Wood Anemone (Anemone nemorosa)


The Wood Anemone is a pretty spring flower of ancient woodlands, and is also planted in graveyards, parks and gardens. Its white flowers bloom between March and May before the canopy becomes too dense, but its seeds are mostly infertile and it spreads slowly through the growth of its roots.

An easily recognisable flower, Wood Anemone is low-growing, with usually 6-7 large, white or purple-streaked 'petals' (which are actually its sepals), deeply lobed leaves and a thin, red stem.(link)
