Anemone coronaria

Poppy Flowered Anemone, Windflower

Their early blooming daisy- or poppy-like flowers and ferny foliage are a mainstay of the spring garden. Plant the hardy Windflower (Anemone blanda) in woodland gardens or rock gardens, or naturalize beneath other early flowering trees, shrubs or bulbs. Use the taller, less hardy Poppy-Flowered Anemone (Anemone coronaria) for bedding, containers or forcing into winter bloom indoors. The perennial Snowdrop Anemone (Anemone sylvestris) is a vigorous spreader and therefore good in loose soils, and is an excellent cut flower. Plant in fall where hardy or in spring in northern climates. Soak tubers before planting to speed growth.
