This charming woodland wildflower hails from Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu, Japan. Anemone keiskeiana has been a gem in our woodland garden, emerging with olive green trifoliate hepatica-like foliage in late fall, often speckled silver. From February through April (NC), the clumps are topped with short spikes of pale lavender flowers that fade to white. Anemone keiskeiana spreads slowly by thin rhizomes to form a nice woodland patch before it goes summer dormant.
