Anemone narcissiflora L. (=synonym Anemone narcissifolia L.)
Narcissus-flowered anemone is a herbaceous plant species in the genus Anemone and family Ranunculaceae. Plants grow 7 to 60 cm tall, from a caudice (woody-like perennial base), flowering spring to mid summer but often found flowering till late summer. Plants with 3-10 basal leaves that are ternate (arranged with three leaflets), rounded to rounded triangular in shape with 40 to 200 mm long petioles. The flowers are produced in inflorescences with 2 to 8 flowers, in umbels, but often also produced singularly. The inflorescence have 3 leaf-like bracts similar in appearance to the basal leaves but simple and greatly reduced in size, pinnatifid in shape. Flowers lack petals, the sepals number 5-9 per flower and are white, white tinted blue or yellow in color. The flowers have 40 to 80 stamens but can have up to 100. After flowering, fruits are produced in rounded heads with 5-14 cm long pedicels. When the fruits, called achenes, are ripe they are ellipsoid to ovate in outline, flat in shape and 5 to 9 mm long and 4-6 mm wide. The achenes are winged with no hairs and have 0.8-1.5 mm long beaks that are curved or recurved.

Anemone narcissiflora is native to north western North America and Eurasia where it can be found growing in high mountain alpine grasslands, in thickets, grassy meadows with moist soils, tundra, open woods, along roadsides and in pastures. This species is very variable and at least 12 varieties are generally recognized with even more proposed by other authorities.

Hello Dejan,
What a wonderful bunch of anemones. You succeeded to photograph the white flowers very well, which isn't easy to do. And the composition is excellent too. You brought a little perfume of spring to us, in these cold days.
Thanks a lot

Bonsoir Dejan.
Tu as réussi une photo de fleurs blanches avec un ensoleillement assez fort... : tu es très fort ...
J'aime beaucoup les anémones, et je te remercie pour ta photo

Hello Dejan,
Beautiful picture nicely composed with great colors and sharpness, lovely light and details and excellent PoV, very well done.

Quelle belles grappes d'anémone : elles sont d'une netteté impeccable, et l'image est très lumineuse.

Hello Dejan,

Another wonderful image from you. White flowers can be tricky to photograph, especially in bright sun, so you've done a good job of capturing a compelling of a beautiful flower.

From your note, it sounds like there may be a complex of species being lumped together under the Anemone narcissiflora name.


Hello Dejan

That is a perfect anemon shot friend with all details, nice comp., Great work!


Beautiful photo of plant species which is very rare in my country. It is growing only in high mountains in Poland, I've seen it only a few times. One of the most beautiful flowers.

Good seprarated from a background - smart DOF.
