Anemone leveillei produces flowers in spring and summer. It is a gorgeous windflower that looks wonderful when planted in big, naturalised groups, ideally on a good, moist soil. It forms a low, softly hairy mound of deeply serrated, rough or slightly hairy leaves. In late spring and early summer this foliage is topped with elegant, pinky lilac-backed white flowers that have a central cluster of dusky purple-blue anthers. These flowers are nectar- and pollen-rich, making Anemone leveillei one of the best species for attracting bees!


In terms of lighting requirement, Anemone leveillei is widely tolerant of anything from full sun to deep shade – but dappled shade will almost certainly give best results. It’s a perfect plant for growing in a woodland border, and it combines beautifully with Hostas and ferns – but it really is stunning when planted in large groups.
