Product Description

Tall Thimbleweed (Anemone Virginiana) A. virginiana, A. cylindrica and A. riparia are all very similar. Ironically, "Tall Thimbleweed" is the one of the three species that is the shortest, reaching only about three feet in height. It also tends to be the hairier of the three. The most distinguishing characteristic of A. virginiana is the shape of the leaf-blade segments. They tend to curve toward the base of the plant. Blooms from June through August in rocky sites among the woodlands from Quebec to North Dakota and southward to Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas and Kansas.

Anemone from the Greek term anemone, meaning "wind" which probably refers to seed distribution or perhaps because the delicate stems and leaves sometimes appear to tremble in the wind and virginiana meaning "of Virginia.
