Description

Anemone virginiana is a perennial that grows 30–80 centimetres (12–31 in) tall, flowering from May until July, the flowers are white or greenish-white. After flowering the fruits are produced, called achenes, and when ripe they have gray-white colored, densely woolly styles, that allow them to blow away in the wind. The leaf structure is whorled halfway up the stem and each individual leaf appears to be deeply cut. Native from eastern North America, where it is found growing in dry or open woods. This plant can be found in 38 out of the 50 states in the U.S. and is located anywhere from Maine to Minnesota going west, and found as far south as Georgia and Louisiana.

Common names include tall anemone, thimble-weed and tumble-weed. Note that several other plant species are known as "thimbleweed". Anemone virginiana was also given the common name "Thimbleweed" due to its pistil resembling the shape of a thimble. This plant is very durable in different weather conditions, ranging from part to sun and being drought and cold tolerant. It prefers acidic soils but will tolerate liming, making it great for gardens.

Hardiness zones: 3-8

Height: 3' 

Note: This plant species is known to have toxicity.

Seeds per pack: 30

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. These seeds require a period of cold. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Leave them at room temperature for 2 weeks. They will not grow yet. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 5-6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature for them to germinate. If possible, the best location for sowing in March, April and May, is in cold frame or a cold greenhouse where they will receive the cold period and fluctuating temperatures naturally.
