Vigorous low growing woody based perennial. From spring to early summer produces very pretty lavender-blue flowers with creamy-grey backs that are notably larger than the flowers borne by the parent wild species .
A woodland plant it will grow best in humus rich soil that remains cool and moist throughout the year, for example in partial shade under deciduous trees or shrubs or in a woodland garden.
Anemone nemorosa Robinsoniana become fully dormant during the summer, surviving as woody rhizomes that lie just beneath the soil surface. Propagation is best undertaken by carefully teasing these rhizomes apart, either to plant new colonies or in to terracotta pots which should be kept somewhere cool during the summer - a sand plunge bed would provide ideal conditions..
Fully hardy and growing to a height of about 15cm, with an effectively unlimited spread under the right conditions.
