Anemones De Caen Mixed Windflower - Spring Flowering


Anemones are extremely popular due to their early, massive flowering and their wide availability. Another big advantage is that the little rhizomes naturalize easily in climatic zones 6-9. They form a lovely, colorful carpet, especially under 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.
Anemone coronaria De Caen came to the Netherlands from France around 1870. Anemones were initially limited to single-flowering types with bright colors and sturdy stems. Ongoing selection has produced cultivars that can be propagated according to color but are also sold as mixed colors.
