If you are battling invasive plants in your yard, it is recommended to plant natives right after you clear an area that can help out-compete the invasive. Anemone virginiana, or Canada Anemone, can be just that plant if you have average to dry soil.
There are many benefits to using Anemone virginiana in the fight against invasives. This native spreads quickly by rhizomes, and while you might want to rethink placing it in your front garden beds, you definitely want a native plant that can hold it’s own against stubborn outsiders.
Perfect for naturalizing areas, it is also a very cute, flowering plant with bright green leaves that add great texture to the landscape. You will see sweet, long-lasting, white flowers starting in June standing atop long stems.
Most of the time these are avoided by deer and rabbits as the leaves are known to be an irritant. (Same goes for household mammals!)
