Anemone - Dwarf forms
These dwarf forms vary between 10-30cm range in height, much smaller than the border forms. However they do provide a much broader range of colours, pretty much all colours under the rainbow. The wood anemones (A. nemorosa) unsurprisingly prefer a dappled shade position, whereas the others are more flexible, like the windflowers (A. blanda), some shade some sun, to the full sun lovers of the peacock windflower (A. pavonina). Greek anemos meaning 'wind', mone meaning 'habit', hence the common name windflower.
