Anemone vesicatoria, also known as blister-leaf, is a tough and water-wise perennial herb that thrives in the shady garden. It features leathery, dark green leaves and small white or yellowish green flowers, followed by attractive fleshy fruits. This plant is well-suited for areas with a Mediterranean-type climate and is best grown in sandy, clay, or loamy soil. It is not threatened and is adaptable to various habitats within the fynbos of the Western and Eastern Cape. Anemone vesicatoria is a popular plant for indigenous gardens, but it grows slowly.
