("Crimson Star") A fine selection found by Susanne Schuller of Germany, who came upon it in the wild less than 10 miles from where Anemone nemorosa 'Stammerberg' and 'Stars in the Night' were discovered. The flowers open pale at first, like 'Rotkaeppchen' and turn pink/red, however, they are larger. The foliage does the opposite: it unfurls dark (purple) and turns light (green), giving 'Karminstern' a decidedly colorful appearance. Spreading, easy to grow "filler" for the woodland garden or in front of a shady border. Prefers moist, humusy soil but tolerates drier soil in summer as they are then dormant. Please note the rhizomes of these Anemone root later in spring and may be shipped not rooted-in.
