One of the joys of early spring the lovely Anemone blanda, from the Eastern Mediterranean where, long before the tourists arrive, it graces rocky places, shrub and open woodland in sheets of colour. The delightful flowers are like large daisies. 'Blue Shades' is a lovely variety with blue petals neatly arranged around a gold centre.
Naturalises and multiply as quickly as snowdrops and bluebells. Delicate carpet of rose pink. Anemones should be planted at least 3-5cm deep and no less than 10cm apart. It is highly recommended that you soak the bulbs in water for one day prior to planting. While they do not object to partial shade, they thrive best when planted in an area with plenty of access to sun. The richer the soil, the more flowers each corm will produce. They are an excellent choice for borders or rockeries, but can also be grown in pots or containers provided they are not given any heat.
In spring, large white daisy-like flowers (to 4cm across) emerge above the attractively lobed, dark green foliage. Each petal has a pink flushed reverse and they all sit around a boss of yellow stamens. Ideal for underplanting shrubs or trees.
