It is considered a natural hybrid as it originally arise in the wild, its thought to be a cross between the Anemone species A. elegans, A. vitifolia and A. hupehensis. This hybrid has a vigorous, branching and upright habit and forms suckering shoots. Foliage is green and divided into oval leaflets with serrated margins. Flowers are borne on branched stems, they are semi-double in structure and pale pink in colour, appearing from late summer through to the middle of autumn.
