Series: Images of a botanical trip to the Free State of Thuringia (German: Freistaat Thüringen) in Germany from 15 - 19/04/2011
Anemone sylvestris (NL: Grote anemoon / EN: Snowdrop anemone / DE: Große Windröschen) is a perennial plant in the Ranunculaceae family. The species is found in rather bright and dry sites and grows to a height of 40 cm and beyond. The flower diameter is four to seven cm. The plant produces only one flower. Only in extremely rare cases, two flowers per plant are formed. In contrast to most other representatives of the buttercup family, the flowers of A. sylvestris are fragrant. This formerly common plant has become rare in recent decades, endangered, and protected.
