Anemone that we offer are dwarf herbaceous perennials that produce pretty flowers over attractive, dissected foliage. They are spring flowering ‘windflower’ or wood anemone that will grow up to a height of 10cm and a spread of up to 30cm.
Many of our varieties are forms of Anemone nemorosa. They are one of the first flowers to appear in early spring and are a welcome sight. They are part of the buttercup family Ranunculaceae and are aBritish native. They will thrive in lightly shaded areas with a well-drained soil. In its natural habitat this plant grows under deciduous trees, flowering before the trees come into leaf so is a perfect low growing plant under trees and shrubs and look particularly impressive when planted in drifts. Becoming dormant in the Summer, they then overwinter as slender rhizomes just beneath the soil surface.
We send out Anemone in 1 litre pots and they are available to buy all year round.
