We are very excited to offer this multi-award winning Anemone, destined to be a favorite in your garden. The elegant 3” snow-white flowers are accented with a lilac blue wash on the reverse and flowers are produced from June to November. Petals nod at twilight to form elegant lilac and white bells. Wild Swan was developed from a chance seedling at Scotland’s Elizabeth McGregor Nursery; selected for its beauty and long blooming performance.

Think of this hybrid as a meld of the spring blooming Windflower Anemone and fall blooming Japanese Anemone with the best of both; medium in height, blooms all season, well-behaved, truly a gem. Winner of the Chelsea Gardens 2011 Plant of the Year award, and the 2013 Best of Show at the Farwest Show in Oregon.
