Anemone blanda Blue
£2.30 – £3.50
Sparkling colour in spring
A beautiful violet-blue Anemone blanda. The Winter Windflower, giving colour to our gardens in early spring.
Light: full sun, partial shade
Soil: well-drained, humus-rich, fertile
Bulb size: 5/7cm or potted
Ideal for naturalising, Anemone blanda will form a shimmering carpet of blue when left undisturbed.
Care: Plant in autumn in well-drained, fertile, moisture-retentive soil at 3 – 5cm deep and 10cm apart. It is usually best to soak them in cold water for a few hours before planting. Anemone blanda like woodland conditions, so while they are growing and flowering they like good access to sunshine, but once dormant in summer they do not like excessive heat. If grown in a pot, move to a shady place during the summer.
