Anemone Planting Instructions

Anemones (Anemone coronaria) also known as Poppy Flower, Windflower or Wild Flower is a herbaceous perennial. They are part of Ranunculaceae or buttercup family that is native to Europe. Anemones are a mid/late Winter to late Spring flowering corm as long as you give them a bit of care such as liquid fertiliser during the flowering period. The corm produces numerous flowers that rise up on stiff stems above their light green lacy fern-like foliage. The flowers are red, pink, white or purple/blue with a dark center. The exception is white which has a green center. Anemones prefer a full sun position in the garden that has well drained soil. They are frost tolerant. Here are the new planting instructions for your Anemone.Anemones are one of the most popular spring flowers we grow here at Floret. They are easy to grow and often produce up to 30 flowers per corm, making them a true garden workhorse. These eye-catching blooms are always a favorite with floral designers and brides. Anemones need extra protection from cold temperatures, but if carefully tended, they will produce an abundance of blooms during the early months of spring.

8. We always get lots of questions about how to store anemone corms until it’s time to plant them, and about whether they can be left in the ground to rebloom the following year. Corms can be stored in the bags they arrive in; keep them in a cool, dry place until it’s time to plant. In colder climates, grow anemones just like annuals and plant new corms each season. If you’re a gardener in USDA zone 7 or above, you can leave your corms in the ground and they may bloom the following year depending on multiple factors, such as how cold your winter is, how well your soil drains, and how much pest pressure you have in your garden. I never count on over-wintered corms and plant new ones every year. If the over-wintered ones return, I always count it as a bonus.

Anemone blanda readily self-sows. I first had a pot of the blue-flowered Anemone blanda on the doorstep outside my office at Perch Hill five years ago. After flowering the pot was moved to the Oast garden and from that small pot most of the spring Oast garden is a now a sea of blue. The seeds blow around and settle into any chink in your planting, taking hold and then gently spreading from there. A writer, artist, and entrepreneur, Lorna is also a long-time gardener who got hooked on organic and natural gardening methods at an early age. These days, her vegetable garden is smaller to make room for decorative landscapes filled with color, fragrance, art, and hidden treasures. Cultivating and designing the ideal garden spot is one of her favorite activities – especially for gathering with family and friends for good times and good food (straight from the garden, of course)!
