Canada Anemone - Anemone canadensis

Anemone canadensis, or Canada Anemone, is a perennial wildflower native to Michigan and the UP. This attractive plant forms dense colonies in its favored habitat of open, moist ground. Its enthusiastic nature might be helpful in keeping invasive plants at bay and it makes an attractive native ground cover that tolerates foot traffic and occasional mowing. The basal foliage with attractive deeply toothed leaves is under a foot in height, while the flower stalks range from 1 to 2 feet. It can crowd out smaller plants, so give it its own space or mix with something equally vigorous, like Cutleaf Coneflower.


This spring-blooming flower with showy white blooms brightens up May and June and provides much needed early pollinator resources. The blooms create dramatic drifts. It prefers medium to medium-wet soil and full to partial sun. Adequate light will keep it from flopping as it leans toward the sun.


Canada Anemone is favored by small bees and Syrphid flies, and the foliage is deer resistant.
