A lovely, vigorous anemone with deep blue flowers from early to late spring. The quality of the flower colour set against the vibrant green foliage is superb.
Good for under-planting trees and shrubs. Naturalises to form good-sized clumps.
Excellent drought resistance when established.
Common name(s): Wood Anemone
The sight of a carpet of white stars on a sunny day is a true sign that spring has sprung. The spring flowers are a useful source of food for sleepy foraging bees.
Any shady spot will support a happy colony of Anemone, so even if you have a city garden, you can plant them in a border that's shaded by a building. Add a bucket or two of leaf-mould to the soil before planting and don't add any fertiliser.
Please note that depending on the time of year, anemones may have been recently repotted when you receive them. When not in leaf these plants are dormant as small rhizomes under the soil. Additionally, as with many plants, the depth of colour can change depending on light levels, soil ph and other factors.
