|Anemone pavonina blooming in my garden now|
After that seemingly one time offering of this anemone, it sort of disappeared from the trade. I have not seen it offered locally since, and it puzzles me as to what became of it. I think it is an excellent plant. It has survived well in my garden in fairly open spots. I have gotten a few, but not many, self sown seedlings, and I wouldn't mind more of them. Since the foliage looks like that of the common ranunculus weed around here, maybe I have had more seedlings, but just not noticed them. I believe this plant can be divided, but I have not yet done so.
I do not know of any current source for Anemone pavonina in the U.S., but the main source in the UK seems to have been Ashwood Nursery. Sadly, their website indicates that due to a crop failure, neither plants nor seeds were available in 2012 and that they are slowly rebuilding their stock. The RHS plant finder lists 11 nurseries which carry it. I do not find it in the Jelitto or Chiltern seed lists.
