Set B6 - Wild Flowers Series 2 - card information

2. Wood Anemone
(Anemone nemorosa L.)

2. Wood Anemone

This exquisite fragile plant often carpets the ground of deciduous woodlands. It blooms early in the year. The flowers grow on slender stems which look as though the slightest breeze would break them, but they survive the roaring winds of late March and, turning their faces away from the blast, are none the worse; indeed the plant's other name is Wind-flower. It is at its best in late April - early May but will continue to bloom until early June.
