Anemonella 'Betty Blake' is a cute selection of the deer-resistant US native Anemonella thalictroides that forms a small rock garden specimen to 6" tall x 6" wide. Starting for us in early April, the button-sized, double lime-green flowers appear atop the tiny thalictrum-like foliage. Although anemonellas are easy to grow, they are quite small and do not compete well with larger more aggressive neighbors. Anemonellas are spring ephemerals and therefore are dormant by midsummer.
