Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral coriaceous On Dec 8, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

Single white 2-3" flowers banded with blue-violet on the reverse. The flowers close partially to become gracefully nodding bells in the evening and early morning. As with many white flowers, its tepals brown as it fades and demand deadheading. Said to bloom repeatedly from May/June till frost. Good vase life.

This won the 2011 Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the Year award.

Unlike the Japanese anemones, this is a clump-former and does not run. The flowers are sterile and will not self-sow. For best performance, it needs rich well-drained soil and consistent moisture, and prefers partial or dappled shade. Intolerant of drought.

According to the patent application, the seed parent was A. rupicola and the pollen parent could have been one of several Japanese anemones. Selected by Elizabeth MacGregor at her nursery in Kirkcudbright in south west Scotland.

The cultivar name is 'MACANE001'. "White Swan" is a proprietary trade name.

US PP #25132. PBR. Registered with COPF. Unauthorized propagation prohibited.
