Anemone flaccida I received some rhizomes from a Japanese friend. They survived in Connecticut but are much, much happier in New Jersey. Rhizomes similar to but more substantial than Anemone nemorosa, a rich, polished, chestnut brown. Somewhat sparse flowering, in pairs. White, with second bud opening into bloom subsequent to first. Dark green leaves, do you call it 3-lobed? Deeply cut but full and almost overlapping, not as an oak's leaves are lobed. Grayish white dot at base of division. Summer dormant. Charming but not wildly exciting. Judy in New Jersey where there's sunshine today and tomorrow, then back to rain. A visit to Branch Brook Park in Newark, New Jersey yesterday, to see cherry trees in flower (2,700 trees.) And along the road in the park - thousands and thousands of Erythronium americanum in stunning yellow bloom, almost sparkling in the Spring sunshine.
