Grows to a height of around 80cm in ideal conditions although more often less than this. The only species in the genus the plants are self fertile and will set seeds. A very pretty plant, well worth considering.

Shade loving in a sheltered position, Anemonopsis macrophylla prefer a cool humus rich moist but well drained soil. Propagation is from seed or by dividing largr clumps early in spring. Little extra care is required. Protect from hot drying winds.
