Anemone apennina whole Anemone apennina close

This delicate anemone is about the same size as our British Anemone nemorosa (Wood Anemone) and with similar leaves but here it grew in dappled not deep shade with other plants interspersed. This is a common plant in British gardens where the cultivars typically have deeper colours and slightly larger flowers.
