Anemone Leveillei Ground Cover
This beautiful anemone erupts with the most perfect white flowers in Spring and Early Summer, each with a green centre that is surrounded by purple-blue anthers, held above compact mound of soft green foliage.
A great plant to add in bold drifts to a sunny border although they will tolerate slightly dappled shade. Best in a reliably moist garden soil.
As a rough guide planting Anemone leveillei plants as ground cover – 4 plants per square metre is adequate with a little patience, 6 will give better coverage and 9-12 will make a weed supressing carpet very quickly.
