RHS Award of Garden Merit

Anemone blanda Blue

Anemone blanda is native to the Balkans and Turkey, where it grows in shady places. It is a knobby tuber from which grow dissected leaves finely divided into 3 leaflets, reach about 4in(10cm) high.  Over this foliage, Anemone blanda blue carries the flowers, with 10-15 petals in many shades of blue, purple, and mauve.   The flowers form drifts which move in the breeze and shimmer with the low angled light of spring. This is a plant for dappled shade, where the sunshine of the spring can be used to aid flowering and grow the tuber and the heat of the summer is kept at bay by the canopy of trees. 

Also available as part of the Blue Bulb Collection.

Planting Instructions

Anemone-blanda-blue

Anemone blanda blue tubers should be planted after first soaking them overnight in cool water.  Place them shallowly (3-4 cm deep) in soil which is free draining and humus rich, where they can be left undisturbed for thick clumps to develop and seedlings to grow on.  An annual dressing of leaf mould will help retain moisture.
