Anemone blanda is a rewarding little plant that can easily provide a great deal of pleasure!
- Offering dabs of bright colors in March, April, mounds of abundant daisy-like flowers show off in shades of white, blue and pink over a finely cut fernlike foliage.
- Winter hardy, this low-growing perennial bedding plant, only 4-6 inches tall (10-15 cm), does well within hardiness zones 4 to 8.
- Extremely popular due to its early and massive flowering and ability to naturalize easily.
- Should be planted in fall, ideally in partial shade areas, and in a moist soil. Will also grow in full sun provided the soil remains moist.
- Forming a lovely, colorful mat, especially under or around woody trees and shrubs which are still bare during the time of the anemones' flowering period. Anemones are actually a must for spots among perennials. Plant them preferably in groups of at least 20.
- Great choice for woodland paths, rock gardens, beds by setting them in front of taller plants, or containers. Deer and rabbit resistant!
