Diminutive woodland plants (just 6–9 in. high and 6 in. wide) with evergreen or nearly evergreen leaves and charming blooms. Flowers resemble small anemones, with narrow, petal-like sepals arranged around a central mass of yellow stamens. Bloom comes in early spring, each flower rising on its own stalk above the clump of last year’s leaves. A new crop of leaves follows bloom.
