Bought this plant from one of the bulb supply companies 10 or more years ago, blooms early March and then vanishes until the next year. has multiplied all over my property. Very pretty early flowers.

Tall 36-38" - Plant 24" apart. Zone 4-8. Gorgeous fall bloomer. Double rose pink flowers that are twice the size of the best Japanese Anemones.
