​This unusual marginal plant from North America has soft, broad, light- to mid-green leaves on reddish stems, and large, white, simple, anemone-like flowers in late summer to autumn. Occasionally the flower petals will develop attractive streaks of bright pink, and in the autumn the leaves will often also turn red. It is robust, fairly slow, and very easy to grow; mature plants spread gradually by sending out small runners. If using a 1-litre pot, pot on after a year into a 2-litre one. Sometimes incorrectly written as Anemopsis californicum.

If designing a planting scheme, we recommend approximately 4 Anemopsis californica plants per square foot of ground, or 2 plants per linear foot of pond edge. Read more here on how to pot and care for your plant.
