Japanes Anemone (Anemone x hybrida), 1-3 ft., winter deciduous, pink or white flowers, light shade, will spread on its own.

Anemone includes rich and varied group of plants ranging in size from alpine rock garden miniatures to tall Japanese anemones grown in borders; bloom extends from very early spring to fall, depending on species.

Japanese Anemone have fibrous roots or creeping rhizomes or rootstocks, and spread easily when well located.
