An early spring flower of delicate white with 6-12 petals. The flowers only open fully in good light, and will follow the direction of the sun’s travel across the skies. The leaves are long-stalked, and deeply lobed.
It flowers March to June. The Wood Anemone forms spectacular drifts in deciduous woodland, meadows and hedgerows. Widespread and locally common.
