(Anemone 'Macane004') Anemone 'Dreaming Swan' is the star performer of the "Swan series" from Scotland's Elizabeth and Alisdair MacGregor. Anemone 'Dreaming Swan' is a spontaneous hybrid between the clumping, high elevation Himalayan Anemone rupicola, and Anemone x hybrida, which includes Anemone hupehensis, A. vitifolia, and A. tomentosa. What we love the most is that Anemone 'Dreaming Swan' clumps...finally, a non-spreading fall anemone! The first of the flowers which start as early as late June continue through October (NC). The 30" tall flower stalks are topped with white flowers with blue blushed petal backs. The flowers begin the season single, followed by more semi-double flowers as the season progresses. Anemone 'Dreaming Swan' is truly a horticultural breakthrough. Bizarrely, the plant patent on this describes a completely different plant.
