Anemone x hybrida 'Whirlwind'
These are herbaceous anemones that are much larger than the spring-flowering bulbs Anemone blanda and nemorosa, typically 50 to 80 cm high, some a little taller, some more spreading. All have lovely flowers, white, pale yellow, blue, red, often with a darker flush to the outside of the petals (strictly sepals). They include plants from woods and from alpine meadows, and originate all round the northern hemisphere.
Anemone x hybrida 'Whirlwind' is a Japanese anemone with pure white, semi-double flowers, 10 cm in diameter (i.e. huge!), on tall stems, flowering from late summer through to the first frosts.
