Fast growing, full sun, native ground covers are hard to find, but Canada anemone is one of them. While not found in NC, it can be found just north in VA & beyond. Deeply lobed basal leaves rise just 6” off the ground. Solitary flowering stalks produce 1” flowers which consist of 5 white, petal like sepals surrounding the yellow stamens and anthers. Spreading by rhizomes, it can form a dense mat in ideal conditions. Make sure you site this plant accordingly, as it can easily overrun other plants. Dry, shadier conditions temper its spreading significantly.
