I have just discovered a new Anemone nemoros cultivar growing between 
'Vestal' which is pure white with a tuft of small white petals in the 
centre, and 'Bracteata' which is an unstable flower that varies 
throughout the clump and from year to year.  It is green, white, 
sometimes with a deep blue eye, and often includes white in leaves 
just under the flowers.

The new plant has a fringe of green and white petals in the centre, 
but longer than those of 'Vestal'.  It looks a bit like a sea anemone.

I have put a picture of it on the Wiki Anemone page.…

Has anyone seen a similar flower?
