Summary

A Mt. Cuba Center Plant Introduction. Pink Pearl rue anemone is an attractive lavender-pink selection of the typically white flowered rue anemone. Numerous 1″, upward facing flowers comprised of petal-like sepals are highly attractivein April just as the earliest blooming spring wildflowers emerge. ‘Pink Pearl’ produces its flowers atop 4″ to 10″ tall stems, with delicate, slightly lobed foliage, reminiscent of maindenhair fern. The wiry stems rise from a cluster of tuberous roots that look like miniature dahlia tubers. ‘Pink Pearl’ should be planted in part sun to full shade in moist but well-drained soil that ranges from slightly acidic to neutral. It typically goes dormant by early summer.

 

‘Pink Pearl’ was introduced by Mt. Cuba Center in 2007.
