Description

This is a fantastic mix of blue, pink and white and anemone blanda make excellent naturalisers as they come back every year and multiply in number. Also known as the Grecian Wind Flower, they are delightful bulbs to plant amongst shrubs and will give a carpet of colour in the Spring. Soak corms overnight prior to planting as this will help germination.

Cultivation instructions:

Blandas are low growing and ideal for planting in the shady areas of the garden, under trees or in containers. They can be left alone to naturalise for many years because they are self seeding. Blandas will provide an even bigger display after a few years because they are low growing and will quickly naturalise in any area. Grow in free draining soils that are humus rich. Cultivate soils to a depth of 10cms and plant corms as per the instructions below.

Ideal for planting between shrubs to fill up the spaces and they work really well when planted with Trilliums and anemone nemerosa. They will also make an impact when planted with other varieties of Anemone blanda.

AGM: Awarded a Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society for its easy garden performance.

Care tips:

Soak the bulbs for 5-8hrs in warm water before planting, keep well watered in their first growing year to help them to establish.

Keep well fed during the growing season and if possible mulch borders with well rotted manure or compost over the winter.
