Anemone 'Blanda'

Anemone 'Blanda' are fanciful daisy-shaped flowers that continue their delightful color show for weeks. This coordinated mix features blue, white, pink and charming bicolors above a backdrop of lovely fernlike foliage. This is a magical bulb flower that belongs in every wildflower meadow. These are true wildflowers that are native to Greece, and carpet whole hillsides there in spring. The jewel-tone colors of these cheerful, upward-facing daisies make them unique and a spectacular treat in early spring. You can plant them in the lawn, too, like crocus. Be sure to plant a good number, and plant them close together so you'll have the "drift" effect. They look stunning in tight large groups.

Anemone Blanda is commonly called "Grecian Windflowers". The jewel-tone colors of these cheerful, upward-facing daisies make them unique and a spectacular treat in early spring. You can plant them in the lawn, too, like crocus. They can be used under shrubs, at the edge of woodland areas, and in rock gardens and mixed borders. They have a tendency to naturalize so your flower carpets will become larger and larger each year. They are also excellent for cutting.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: The product should be planted immediately after received in the fall. In extremely warm climates, plant when the ground cools. You may plant earlier or later as long as the ground is not too warm or frozen. Soak your corms for a few hours in lukewarm water to "wake them up". In autumn, plant in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. 1. Dig a hole 2" deep. Plant each corm 2" deep, or two times the height of the bulb in well-drained soil with plenty of humus. 2. Set the corm firmly in place. 3. Cover the corms with soil and water thoroughly. Remove old flowers leaving as much stem and foliage as possible until they die down. Grow in informal groupings of 5 or more corms. In cold climates, bulbs may be planted from late summer until ground freezes. In warm climates that are frost free, plant in late fall. Water thoroughly after planting and fertilize each spring thereafter.
