Endangered in some areas
Anemone canadensis (Canada anemone, round-headed anemone, meadow anemone, crowfoot) is a herbaceous perennial native to moist meadows, thickets, streambanks, and lakeshores in North America, spreading rapidly by underground rhizomes, valued for its white flowers.
Seeds are achenes, borne in a small dense head.
In former times it was used medically by North American Indigenous peoples as an astringent and as a styptic for wounds, sores, nosebleeds, and as an eyewash. The root was respected by Plains tribes and used for many ailments.
