The spring-flowering autumn-planted ephemeral species Anemonoides blanda is grown in large-scale commercial cultivation and can be purchased in bulk quantities. It is most commonly-available with a bluish violet flower (usually erroneously called "Blue Shades" despite its flower being more purple than blue) that varies from intense to pale, depending upon the individual plant and possibly soil conditions. A white-flowered form is the second-most common type. The least common of the commonly-cultivated forms is a pale pink. The violet, and especially pink, forms sometimes possess petals that fade to white near the flower center. The genus contains quite a number of other spring-flowering species. A. hortensis and the hybrid A. fulgens have less-divided leaves than some others and have rose-purple or scarlet flowers. Some species, such as A. coronaria (often known as poppy anemone) have roots that resemble bulb-like corms. The small corms are planted in groups, like tulips or daffodils. Place them in clusters spaces about 1 inch apart and 2 inches deep. Let nature dictate the spreading of the cluster. With corm-types, leave the foliage in place to replenish the corms until it turns brown to sustain nutrients in the corms. Whatever the species of Anemone, these plants generally like at least four hours of sun each day and well-drained soil that is relatively moist. Once planted, they are relatively carefree plants. Those types with rhizomatous roots will need to be lifted and divided every three years or so. When foliage turns brown in late fall, cut it away to ground level.

Anemone coronaria has showy flowers with brightly-colored petals and dark centers. They bloom in early spring or late summer, depending on where you live and when the corms are planted. De Caen and St. Brigid are the two most common types of Anemone coronaria. Both are outstanding cut flowers that will last 2 to 3 weeks in a vase. In warm zones, the corms of Anemone coronaria are usually planted in fall. In colder zones they are planted in spring. Shop HERE for Anemone blanda and Anemone coronaria De Caen and St. Brigid anemones are winter hardy in zones 7-8, though they will benefit from an insulating layer of winter mulch. If you live in a colder growing zone or don’t want to risk losing the corms over the winter, you can dig them up in fall after the foliage has died back. Let the corms dry thoroughly and then pack them into dry peat moss. Store these corms separately (not mixed with other types of bulbs) in a dry, well-ventilated place at 50-55°F. Replant in spring.If you like variety, the Anemone (Anemone hybrids) is the flower for you, providing gardeners with a single plant type that can be grown in a variety of colours.

Anemones are easy to grow from corms and are hardy once established, requiring little attention. There are about 200 species of anemones that are native to Asia, North America and Europe. They grow from a tuber and depending on the type, will bloom in either spring, summer or fall. The cup-shaped flowers come in various colors of red, pink, blue, yellow, purple and white. They are generally showy and leaves vary as to species. (Source: plants.ces.ncsu.edu)
