It will self-seed, or can be divided in the fall. Noteworthy Characteristics: Anemone americana is a perennial herb with distinctive 3-lobed rounded tips on the leaves. It is among the first flowers to bloom in the spring. The dainty white, pink or purple flowers appear before the new leaves on fuzzy stems. Rounded, leathery, semi-evergreen leaves emerge soon after flowering. Garden Uses: Groundcover; woodland or shady rock garden
