The chelone (turtleheads) will have seed pods where the flowers were once they go by, the pods will be filled with papery brown/tan seeds.

Jody's right on the turtlehead. Anemone spread very fast without the worry of planting seeds. I planted Anemone about three years ago and from a few small plants, I now have a clump of about 15 or so. They're just starting to bloom here and what a great plant.

Alchemilla (lady's mantle) is a notorious self-seeder. I let the babies grow where they land and move them around in the late spring. I also grow Anemone x hybrida 'Honorine Jobert' ( white) and 'Queen Charlotte' (rosy pink). Of the two Honorine is the most robust, spreading nicely to fill a dappled shaded area of my garden, I haven't moved them butif I wanted to I would divide a clump in the fall. I am afraid I don't water my Astilbes enough to keep them entirely happy...I grow A. chinensis var. taguetii 'Superba'. It's rhizome also branches underground and I have sucessfully moved them around in late spring when I see the new ones growing nicely.

Thank you all so much for answering my questions! I really appreciate it!
