Anemone - Windflower

Anemone also known as the Windflower may be grown from seed or rootstock. Anemone requires humus rich soil and this bulb thrives in sun or light shade. Anemone is available in white, pink, red, purple and blue. The flowering period depending upon the variety is from March to August. Anemone attains a height of approximately six to nine inches.

Anemone Windflower

Anemone shapes are either daisy like or bowl like. The daisy shaped Anemone bear narrow petals and contain a golden disc in the center of the bulb. The bowl shaped Anemone used extensively by florists usually bears striking bright colors. The mature clumps may be divided in late summer although you must replant immediately.

When dividing any plants in my garden I usually perform this task either early in the morning or early evening. The sun may scorch roots if you are not careful and I always have good soil on hand to assist with the transplant. The soil is one part peat, one part compost, one part topsoil and a heaping handful of Bonemeal. This great mixture assists in reducing the shock when moving plants to new locations. After the transplant water immediately and your success rate will flourish following this technique.
