Anemone virginiana has a low-growing cluster of deeply cleft basal leaves that put forth several 2-3′ tall flower stalks topped with unique flowers. Flowers resemble an unripe green strawberry, or a thimble, and after pollination split open to release a tufted cotton-like mass of fibers that bear the seeds on the wind.
