These flowers were very beautiful. The color was very bright and stood out from a distance. Adding note Spring 2014: I found out that they didn't retrun from last year. They may not be perennial here but I don't care. The amount of bloom and color they provide make it worth planting each year. I will experiment and try to lift during winter, etc; and see what the results are. Also, I just planted two new types this year so I will see if it is just Sylphide that doesn't return for me or others as well. Update fall 2014: I now believe they were showing up and I was pulling them. The babies look a lot like annual seedlings. Well I have a crop of anemones returning and this year I finally identified them correctly and am leaving them be. Fingers crossed!
