A strong, creeping rhizome, due to which the anemone grows, keeps it, and the delicate, at first glance, fragile stem, even after a strong hurricane and rain, again takes up a vertical position. Plant height 15 - 30 cm.

Lyutichny anemone

The palmate, strongly dissected leaves, are located high from the ground, have a very gentle, green color in spring, and closer to the middle of summer, darken. The plant, from the moment of planting seeds to flowering, can develop within ten years, and very sensitive to the composition of the soil.

Siberia, the middle zone of Russia, the foothills of the Caucasus, Asia Minor, and Central Europe are an areola of growth, where mostly anemone is widespread. Delivered artificially to the British Isles, it changed nature somewhat and acclimatized.

Anemone is a poisonous plant, therefore, it is necessary to use it as a therapeutic agent with great care., and only provided that you know all the contraindications.


One of the most common types due to a very decorative look, the height of the stem is up to 50 cm. Beautiful bouquet groups are built from it, both from one type and in combined bouquets. Flowers, up to 8 cm in diameter . simple, or terry, can have all shades of blue and colors similar to it.

White or oak wood

A species that differs from the widespread yellow not only in color, but also in height. If the yellow anemone reaches a height of 30 cm, then the white may be 50 cm. . Gardeners are happy to use Anemone Dubravnaya in spring beds.

Plant 10 - 20 cm tall with a soft purple flower, or other similar shades, as well as pink and white. Pointed long flower petals make it look like a daisy. Blossoms, like most representatives, in early springand is widely used by gardeners.

Chemical composition of the plant

The content in the anemone of some toxic substances, such as: tannin, saponins, resins, camphor, ranunculin glycoside, as well as protoanemonin, make it poisonous. Protoanemonin is soluble in organic solvents, but poorly soluble in water. But this is what makes anemone a plant used in the manufacture of certain drugs. Independent use of leaves and stems in the role of medicine can cause significant harm to health.

Pharmacological properties

In addition to the well-known analgesic properties, buttercup anemone has properties:

  • Antimicrobial,
  • Antispasmodic,
  • Anti-inflammatory

Anemone is used to treat gallstone disease, paralysis, inflammation of the liver, bronchial asthma, pain of a different nature, and many more diseases. Infusion of leaves on alcohol is used for compresses, rubbing, as a distracting agent, for radiculitis, rheumatism, as well as for the removal of edema.

Lyutichny Anemone is a very poisonous plant, so it should be used cautiously

Butterucus anemone - an interesting plant, and its use in floriculture, medicine, at the moment, is not wide enough. The main thing - when using in this or that direction, do not forget about caution.and take seriously the means that can harm your body.

Plant classification

Buttercup anemone has several equivalent names. Often this plant is called buttercup anemone or buttercup anemone. In Latin, the name sounds like Anémone ranunculoídes. Anemones are classified as dicotyledons. The next classification step is to determine the order of the plant. In this case, we are talking about the order of the buttercup flowers, which includes the buttercup family. The type of anemone Lyutichnaya is a representative of the vast anemone genus.

The most suitable place

Most often, this type of plant can be found in deciduous forests. Such an ecosystem is most suitable for this species. Somewhat less often, flower buttercups come across in mixed spruce-deciduous forests. If desired, a buttercup anemone, you can try to plant on the garden plot. This shade-loving plant will serve as a wonderful spring decoration.

Distribution of species

The zone of spreading anemone of a buttercup covers not only the European part of Russia, but also Ciscaucasia, that is, the flat territories north of the foothills of the Caucasus, Southern Siberia, Central Europe, the Mediterranean, Asia Minor and even the British Isles. True, in the latter case, the territory cannot be called a natural habitat, the buttercup anemone moved to the British Isles by chance, but it got accustomed to it beautifully.

Description of the plant. Sprout

The sprouts of a buttercup anemone appear very early. This occurs at the very beginning of spring, when the earth still slumbers under a layer of last year’s grass and snow. Each sprout is a stalk with three underdeveloped leaves at the top. Initially, the stem is crocheted, and the folded leaves are directed downwards. It is interesting that the sprout begins to break through not by the upper end or by the leaves, but by a hooked bend, this helps to overcome the forest litter layer.

Roots and leaves

Yellow buttercup anemone refers to perennial herbaceous rhizomatous plants. On average, its height is about 30 cm. The rhizome is located superficially. It is a creeping type, so it can be quite long. Root beaded, fleshy and elastic. Externally, it looks like a brown knot with special banners. The white inner part is well visible on the rift, where starch and other nutrients are stored. From the surface of the rhizome down a few thin roots.

Radical leaves anemone buttercup has not. But sometimes it gives one basal leaf palmar-dissected forms on a long petiole. Like all anemone, a buttercup look has 3 leaves on top of a thin stalk. They are directed in different directions and are located in a horizontal plane, forming a green tier. Each sheet is cut into separate lobes and has a short petiole.

Flowers and fruits

People often confuse garden buttercups, photos of which can be found in special journals, and buttercup anemone. In fact, these flowers are very similar. Notice the differences can only be a very careful examination. So, the buttercup flower has a double perianth with sepals and petals. Anemone is the owner of a simple perianth, consisting only of petals, and sepals are absent. So the name "buttercups-flowers" to anemone can be used only as a joke.

As you already understood, the flowers of this species of anemone have a rich yellow-golden color. Their diameter is about 3 cm. Petals in a bud of 5 pieces, peduncles are always single. On one plant they can be from 2 to 5 units. The flower appears in mid-April and lasts up to 20 days. Then the petals fall to the ground. On the peduncle remains a cluster of small fruits.

During flowering anemone buttercup there are almost no other plants. It refers to primroses. In the forest at this time it is light, nothing obscures it. Buttercups garden, photos of which we have already discussed, bloom much later - closer to June. So confusing these species is quite difficult.

After flowering, the leaves of the anemone buttercup gradually turn yellow. By the end of spring, the forest is dressed with foliage, other plants gradually appear and the anemone becomes dark. Yellowed anemone buttercup falls on the ground and dries. At the beginning of summer, there is no trace of it left, but the superficial rhizome is alive. It will wait for the next spring to please the world with a modest little yellow flower. For a special schedule of life anemone is included in the list of groin ephemeroids.

Who are the gully ephemeroids?

This is a special ecological group, which includes herbaceous perennials, which have a too short growing season. The development of ephemeroids may occur in different periods. For example, the following types of ephemeroids are characteristic of spring: tulips, crocuses, snowdrops, anemone, crested insects and goose onions. And in the fall, the short-term vegetation of the autumn crocus takes place.

Perennial ephemeroids are often confused with annual ephemers. The growing season of ephemera is also fleeting. But in the first case, the terrestrial part of the plant completely dies out after the growing season, but the underground organs (rhizome or onion) remain. In the second case, the plant bears fruit and dies completely.

Honey qualities

Buttercup anemone has good melliferous qualities. As soon as it blooms in the forest, hardworking bees can begin the laborious process. Bright yellow flowers attract insects, but, unfortunately, quickly fade. This type of plant is characterized by group growth, so they are easy to find in forest glades. In bad weather and at night, the flowers are closed to preserve their valuable contents.

How to plant a buttercup anemone

Planting buttercups, or rather an anemone buttercup, seeds will require certain skills. Seeds are difficult to collect, and after harvesting must be sown immediately. Otherwise they will lose their germination. Sow better in boxes with loose soil nutrient mixture. Then bury the boxes and cover up with mulch. About 25% of the seeds will rise next year. Seedlings need to be well moisturized, and they will begin to bloom for 2-3 years.

Much easier to do vegetative reproduction. Long branching rhizome is easily divided into separate fragments. They are shallowly buried in the ground, and soon a bud is laid on each, and adventitious roots are formed. By the end of the summer, all the organs necessary for the independent existence of the buttercup anemone will be formed. Next spring the plant will give an early flower. In a few years, the anemone will grow and form dense little scrubs that need to be weeded and mulched occasionally. In the spring you can make complex fertilizers. Thus, on the garden plot you can get your own primroses.

Biological description and characteristics

The folk name of the flower is “wind”, because even with weak gusts of wind it swings strongly, and a thin stem with yellow flowers leans towards the ground. Rhizome elongated, creeping, divided into separate segments. Thanks to its root system, the buttercup anemone spreads, expanding over the entire accessible area. The roots also keep it upright, and the gentle, seemingly brittle, single stem can withstand even strong hurricanes. Basal leaves are usually not, rarely there is one leaf. Finger-cut leaves are fixed on long petioles and located at a sufficient height from the ground, in spring they are painted in a light green color, but around the middle of summer they become darker in color.

Buttercup anemone is a perennial plant and it may take about ten years from planting seeds before flowering. And the full life cycle of one rhizome can last up to sixty years. This plant is extremely sensitive to the chemical composition of the soil. An attempt to transplant forest anemone to the garden plot is likely to be doomed to failure due to the difficulties in accurately reproducing the composition and properties of the soil customary to the plant. It is better to use specially bred varieties adapted to the conditions of the garden for these purposes.

Buttercup anemone can be found in the European part of Russia, in the foothills of the Caucasus, in the south of Siberia, in Western Europe, in the Mediterranean region and in Asia. It was also artificially brought to the UK, where it was slightly modified during acclimatization. Anemone is a poisonous plant and it should be used very carefully as a drug, and only taking into account all the contraindications and observing the dosage.

Common species

Buttercup anemone, along with the oak tree, is most characteristic of the European part of Russia. The shoots germinate at the very beginning of spring from the near-surface horizontal rhizome, thanks to which the plant spreads and forms whole clusters or spots. One, rarely two five-petal yellow flowers bloom on a separate long pedicel. Blooms in spring: in April or May. In July, leaflets are already tied, which are then opened along the seam, freeing multiple seeds. When growing a buttercup anemone in the garden plot, the following rules should be observed:

  • to land in light penumbra,
  • choose a well-drained soil
  • acid soils should be fertilized with dry lime,
  • periodically thin out flower beds,
  • water regularly, especially during the flowering period, but not excessively, as excess moisture damages the plant,
  • to make during flowering mineral fertilizers.

Other types

Crown. Flowers of this type are similar to field poppies, but have a neater, noble form. They have a more diverse color: red (like poppies), azure-blue, snow-white, soft purple or pinkish with multi-colored splashes and edges. This type of anemone has flowers of the largest size, reaching a diameter of ten centimeters. For early and more magnificent flowering you need:

  • soak the planting material in water for a while
  • plant in well-drained soil,
  • avoid shaded areas
  • if the soil has an acidic reaction it is necessary to neutralize it with dolomite flour.

White (oak). The main difference of this species from the widespread buttercup anemone is white, not yellow flowers, having from six to eight petals instead of five. The white anemone is also somewhat larger - up to 50 centimeters in height, against thirty in a buttercup. Anemone oakwood, due to early flowering, is well suited for spring flower beds.

  • Prefers sufficiently lit places.
  • Feels better on rich alkaline soils.
  • The soil should be loose and have a texture.
  • For the winter, a white flower bed with anemone is better to mulch to prevent it from freezing.

Tender. The stunted height is from ten to twenty centimeters, with flowers of various shades of purple, less often pinkish and white. The shape of the flower petals gives it some similarity with chamomile. Flowering begins at a characteristic time for representatives of this species - in early spring.

Growing and caring for plants

One of the main advantages of anemone - is an incredibly attractive appearance. Even if you consider it risky to use this plant for treating diseases, you can simply plant anemones in your area and enjoy their beauty in early spring. Consider the basic rules for planting and caring for this herb.

Conditions of detention

The plant is successfully grown in the open field, it will become a worthy decoration of the dacha plot or any flower bed. Especially since the flowering of anemone begins very early, when many other plants have not yet had time to wake up after winter. The buttercup anemone prefers light partial shade, so it is best to plant it between trees and shrubs. When choosing a landing site, it is worth considering that the anemone grows very quickly.

Soil and fertilizer

The soil for planting should certainly be light and well drained, and also contain a large amount of humus. In order for the soil to meet these criteria, it is necessary to add a bit of river sand and small stones to the ground. Anemone does not like the soil with high acidity, the optimal level for it is 7-8 pH. Lime is used to reduce the acidity of the soil. As a feed you can use mineral complex fertilizers. Make them should be in the flowering period.

Relation to temperature

In temperate climates, the plant winters well in the ground. In late autumn, you need to mulch the soil around the plant with foliage, peat or humus by 2–3 cm and cover the plantings with spruce leaves. But in the northern corners, where winters are very harsh, it is better not to leave the anemone buttercup winter in the garden. It is recommended to dig up the rhizome and place in a dark cool place until the temperature normalizes. In early spring, the plant can be returned to its original place.


It is possible to multiply a butterfoot anemone in several ways:

  • Tubers - The plant has a strong and developed rhizome, which grows very quickly. In the spring you can see young bushes with buds that are easy to replant. This method is the most successful.
  • Root division - In early spring, you can dig up the tubers of the plant and divide them into parts so that each delenki has a bud. Then delenki planted in the ground to a depth of 5 cm, horizontally placing the rhizome.
  • Seeds - This method is considered very troublesome and is very rarely used by gardeners. Seeds of anemone are sown before winter, but immediately it is worth noting that they do not have a high germination rate.

Possible difficulties in growing

When complying with the rules of agrotechnics, problems with growing plants are extremely rare. The main thing is not to allow overmoistening and drying of the rhizome, as well as to make mineral fertilizers in a timely and metered manner. In cold regions, it is necessary to dig up the tubers for the winter, otherwise flowering will occur much later.

Pests, diseases and prevention

Anemone does not belong to the painful representatives of the flora, but even with the high resistance to diseases, some problems can still arise. It happens that a herbaceous plant infects slugs. To combat them, it is enough to install water containers with high chlorine content. A plant affected by nematodes. Sometimes nematodes attack an anemone of buttercups, their harmful effects are directed to the rhizome, which is covered with spots, it hurts and dies. If such a problem is diagnosed, the plants destroy and disinfect the soil.

Now you know that a herbaceous plant called an Anemone anemone can easily be grown in its summer cottage. Her bright yellow flowers will be among the first to announce the arrival of spring and delight with its beauty. And if necessary, you can dry its foliage and use it as a medicine for various diseases.
