It's interesting to hear about your local Anemone. Our native Wood
Anemone is Anemone nemorosa which is often grown in gardens in its
native form and also selections which have bigger flowers or are tinged
with blue or pink. Do you have A. nemorosa as a common garden plant in

I know A. quinquefolia is a kind of smaller and later plant which is
otherwise quite like A. nemorosa. Is A. deltoidea similar as well, and
are either of these two grown as garden plants?
