Instagram post 2150375574999160612_2071959057 Anemone Elfin Swan - such a dainty little thing! Another new addition to the 'Swan' series. White flowers with purple backed petals - compact at around 45cm in height. Prefers a moist but well drained soil in sun or part shade. With more hybrida in the cross, this cultivar is more reliable than Wild Swan.

We love this late season herbaceous perennial with its mass of tiny violet-blue flowers in profusion. Grows to around 90cm high in full sun or part shade. Fully hardy, it likes a fertile, well drained soil.
