Wood anemone and its relatives

Anemone nemorosa is one of my favorite species in a favorite genus! (Yes this one too ;) ) The common wild wood anemone grows almost everywhere in Norway. However, although the white form dominates, more or less pink forms exists too. Also forms with flowers in shades of blue can be found but not in Norway.

Another handsome wood dweller here is the yellow cousin Anemone ranunculoides which is less common. You can be lucky and find the progeny of the two, A. x lipsiensis where both parents grow also.

Here are some of the forms I grow in my garden (they are not collected in the wild though ;) ), pictures taken in rain! Many have cultivar names but the names have disappeared . . . .

These are all great, you already know I like nemorosa :) ranunculoides is pretty too- leaves look nice, though yellow is a more common flower colour here, but the pale yellow hybrid is very nice!

A friend in Poland sent me some bits of roots of woodland plants last fall, ranunculoides was one, and also another Anemone, I can't remember for sure, maybe it was nemorosa.. no signs of any emergence yet, but those beds are just out of the snow...

Very nice Ernie! Especially the trifoliata! I have been looking for the real thing with entire (but serrated) leaves like yours for some time.

Does anybody grow Anemone oregana or A. quinquefolia?

I have tried to find the names of the windflowers.

Left to right: Anemone nemorosa 'Royal Blue', 'Vestal'?, Robinsoniana seedling - I have had Robinsoniana for years and it has crossed with the common one resulting in several seedlings of different size and colour.

     

Some unknown doubles

   

Anemone ranunculoides has several double forms. The common one is 'Pleniflora' which often gets three flowers per stem. Anemone x lipsiensis has started to make a clump!

Trond....There is a large patch of quinquifolia near here and I plan on collecting some seed from it. Send a PM so I will remember to send some to you....Ernie that goes for you too if you want some seed.

I showed a couple photos of our native Anemone quinquefolia in the following link, I have one small start of this plant growing, selected for a dark leaf type.

A quinquefolia is very interesting! I think it is cited in just a couple of odd disjunct spots in Alberta- not near here..
definitely one that would be nice to try...
