Western Pasqueflower (Anemone occidentalis)

3.50

The Anemones are a group of wildflowers I’ve gotten a little obsessed with of late. This particularly distinctive species is also known as White Pasqueflower, Chalice Flower, Towheaded Baby, and Old Man of the Mountain. Clusters of showy white blooms and lacy foliage are followed by striking mop-like, feathery seed heads on long stalks. These are found in subalpine and alpine areas, on open rocky slopes and meadows. Sow in fall, in well draining, even gravelly, medium and full sun. This one isn’t often available and propagation info is limited, some experimentation probably required. Potentially a good species for the rock garden!

Note: Some sources say toxic if ingested and sap may cause skin irritation.
