Description

Anemone Virginiana, Thimbleweed, Tall Anemone, Organically Grown Native Perennial Plugs, Native Wildflowers, Native Pollinator Support Plants

Anemone virginiana is a spring-blooming anemone. It grows up to 2′ tall (sometimes taller in the wild) and typically occurs in rocky or dry open woods or wooded slopes. One inch diameter flowers are borne on erect stems above the foliage and feature five, white, petal-like sepals and a thimble-like, center mound of yellowish stamens. Flowers give way to thimble-shaped seed heads which remain on the plants well into winter. Three-parted leaves may carry a reddish tinge late into the season.

This perennial’s erect, multiple stems, rising 2-3 ft., are topped by a greenish-white flower with a slightly elongated center resembling a short thimble. After frost, the thimble matures to a cottony tuft. Leaves are deeply cut and clustered in a whorl halfway up the stem.

The distinctive, thimble-shaped group of pistils accounts for the common name. Long-headed Thimbleweed (A. cylindrica) has narrower leaf segments and fruit in a long, cylindrical cone 1 1/2 inches (4 cm) long; it is found from Alberta east to Quebec and south to New Jersey and Kansas.
