Extra special flowers with a delightful blue halo. Mix them and match them with blue and white varieties for a wow of a show or let them steal the show solo. Either way you will enjoy up to six weeks of fabulous colour.
In drifts and clumps Anemones look amazing and are an economical way to ring in the spring. Grouping them close together is sure to create the most memorable display.
De Caen Anemones are simple and sweet with that winning combination of being small on price and big on show. You could try planting them into a cottage garden, have them overflowing from pots or create a colourful feature with a mass planting.
You can even cut the flowers for indoor display, the blooms will last a week or two in a vase. Cutting the flowers has the additional benefit of encouraging more to bloom.
The handsome foliage of De Caen Anemones is light green and heavily dissected, so it appears soft and fern like.
Plant De Caen Anemones in humus rich, moist, well drained soil. Fertilise regularly and they will deliver rich rewards - these small corms grow quickly and bear lots of blooms, so they need adequate nutrition to flower at their best.
Anemones average 10-15 weeks from planting to flower so you can effectively time their display – they will be slower in cooler temperatures. In most areas of Australia they are ideally planted in autumn for spring blooms. Though cool climates they can be planted in spring and enjoyed late summer/autumn (protect from hot afternoon sun if you want them to last).
Such amazing value.
