Tall Thimbleweed (Anemone virginiana) This ornamental perennial is erect, has multiple stems, and rising 2-3 ft. Topped by a greenish-white flower that measures 1.5" across, with a slightly elongated center resembling a short thimble. After frost, the thimble matures to a cottony tuft. Leaves are deeply cut and clustered in a whorl halfway up the stem.
The distinctive, thimble-shaped group of pistils accounts for the common name.
