Meadow Anemone is a robust, competitive native plant that forms dense, rhizomatous clumps that are capable of covering large areas effortlessly. In favorable conditions, it spreads at a rapid rate, covering the ground with deeply dissected, light green foliage. It can be difficult to contain this plant, so it is best left to naturalize in large areas such as meadows (hence the common name) or challenging, partially shaded parts of the landscape where few other plants seem to thrive. It can be aggressive when given moist, well-drained soil and ample sunlight. Drier conditions or shady areas tend to slow down the spread considerably. This plant is rarely bothered by deer and rabbits, so it can be a useful choice of groundcover for areas where these mammals seem to eat everything in sight.
Above the plentiful foliage, bright white, single 2″ flowers with yellow centers sit atop hairy stems in early summer. The blooming period continues for about a month and a half, attracting small bees and assorted small flies with its pollen. It also attracts predatory and parasitoid wasps which can help to control common garden pests.
