An excellent and very pretty plant, I just wish it were more easily produced as I think it more attractive than A. blanda in British conditions, but it is not a commercialised plant. White or shades of blue flowered plants with many deeply cut petals on flowers held well above soft mounds of leaves. Ideal under big deciduous trees following snowdrops and flowering with the early daffodils. The colours combine very naturally. Plant the small stick-like rhizomes in small groups 6” (15cm) apart where they will thereafter seed about. I think our strimming - once a year in the summer has greatly increased their spread. Home grown and dug-to-order from under the trees here the damp packed rhizomes are inevitably rather variable in size.
Anemone apennina has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit because it has proved to be reliable in appropriate conditions and a good performing plant.
Anemone apennina rhizomes should be planted horizontally about 2-3" (5-8cm) deep in small groups about 6" (15cm) apart, in a leaf-mould rich soil occupying a position where they will get a dry summer rest and be left to increase undisturbed. An excellent and very pretty plant ideal for dry 'problem areas' under big deciduous trees in light grass
