Meadow Anemone is a very attractive plant with bright white flowers and geranium-like leaves. It stays fairly short, rarely growing much taller than two feet. Sunny, wet areas are its preferred conditions, but it will grow with less sun and less moisture. However, if conditions are too shady, the flower stems may flop over, and if too dry, the plants may die back to the ground in July or August (though they will often start growing again before the season is over).

 
This plant would be a 4-star winner if only it didn't spread so aggressively. It spreads by underground rhizome and can create dense colonies that get larger every year. In a formal wildflower bed with similar sized plants or shorter, meadow anemone will likely overwhelm them. However, it can act as a ground cover in plantings with larger, taller plants. Plants suitable for rain gardens are often tall and will not be bothered by meadow anemone parading everywhere below.
