Anemonastrum canadense, also known as the the Canada anemone, meadow anemone, windflower, or crowfoot, is an herbaceous perennial native to moist meadows, thickets, stream banks, and lake shores in North America. The plant grows to a height of one to two feet, with deeply cut, sharply toothed, dark green leaves. In late spring and early summer it bears brilliant white flowers, about two inches in diameter, with contrasting yellow stamens.

The meadow anemone likes moist, well-draining, humusy soil and can thrive in partial shade to full sun. Under the right conditions, its spreads rapidly via underground rhizomes.
