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.
