In late spring or early summer Anemone multifida's finely cut, light green leaves are eye-catching. But your eye may have first been caught by the hairy, half inch, pink to red to maroon, or yellow to white flower sepals (Anemone lack petals). Often the flowers are bicolored.
Last year's dried leaves and stalks can be seen at the base of the new growth, so you know the plant is a perennial and that once you have found this delicate beauty, you can return to the same location and enjoy it again next year.
Of note: Anemone's produce a volatile, strongly irritating oil. The leaves of most species are iritating and some can be boiled to make a strong tea for killing fleas and lice. How nice.
