Jim McKenney asked about Anemone biflora.

The photo in Rix & Phillips is also what stimulated me to seek out 
this plant, but I have to tell Jim and the other readers that it's 
misleading: the actual plant and its flowers are very small, the 
flowers being only about 2 cm in diameter when open. It is, however, 
hardy to at least 20 F.

I expect the difficulty in obtaining it has to do with the fact that 
it is uncommon even in the wild, and the British seem to have a lot 
of trouble growing it. I've obtained viable seeds from my two plants 
and have a few seedlings, but they're difficult to bring on.
