This is perennial herbaceous plant with flower spike rising to around a metre, above a mass of grapevine-like leaves. Statuesque buds open to rose pink flowers with cupped petals around orange stamens in late summer.
Anemone x hyrida is a “must-have” plant in gardens around the world. “Whirlwind” has semi-double white flowers, and provides long lasting interest with its attractive buds, long lasting flowering period, into winter interest from the faded flower heads. They are particularly noted for flowering in late summer when many other flowers are fading.
