Anemone canadensis

6 June

We have gorgeous and slowly expanding clump of these plants under a Viburnum bush in almost perpetual shade which they seem to like.

Anemone canadensis, the Canada anemone, round-headed anemone, round-leaf thimbleweed, meadow anemone, windflower, or crowfoot, is a herbaceous perennial native to moist meadows, thickets, streambanks, and lakeshores in North America, spreading by underground rhizomes.

Was used medically by North American Indigenous peoples as an astringent and as a styptic for wounds, sores, nosebleeds, and as an eyewash. The root was respected by Plains tribes and used for many ailments.
