1. Depending on where you live and what kind of setup you’re working with, you can plant your anemone corms in either autumn or late winter/early spring, in a place where they’ll get full sun. In areas with mild winter temperatures (USDA zone 7 and above), corms can be planted in the autumn and successfully overwintered outdoors with protection from a low tunnel or frost cloth. In colder areas (USDA zone 6b and below), anemones must be grown in a minimally heated hoop house or held back and planted out at the end of winter/early spring. If corms are exposed to temperatures below 25°F (-4°C), they will freeze and ultimately rot once thawed. So be sure to protect them from extreme cold temperatures.
