More useful information about Anemone

Windflower or sapphire anemone (Anemone blanda) as well as the wood anenomes (Anemone nemorosa) like to grow wild among bushes and over time they form large clumps. They bloom from February to April.

There are many varieties of these easy to care for small plants and in addition to the classic white spring ones, there are also types with pink, purple or delicate blue-tinged flowers. When buying anenomes, it is worth looking at the wide selection of types available.  In addition to Anemone nemorosa, the other very popular spring types are the windflower or sapphire anemones (Anemone blanda). These come from the Mediterranean, where they can be found in forests and on rocky mountain slopes. Also, many of these have beautiful varieties in different colours, for example, the popular blue 'Blue Shades' or the tender pink 'Charmer'. They also like to naturalise under woody plants. It is best to plant the respective varieties in small groups so that they can then reproduce independently. And if there is some space in your garden, add a new variety there. It will certainly not be boring to buy and plant anemones.

 

Location 

Buschwindröschen Anemonen kaufen LuberaAll spring varieties like light shade and quite loose, humus soil. Classically, they are planted under bushes. There they have full light in the spring during the flowering period. Later in the summer, when the foliage of the trees casts shadows, they have already sunk into the ground. They are happy to receive some compost. When planting it is also worth loosening the soil so that these spring flowers will be able to root well. Once set, you do not have to do anything afterwards. Buying these superb spring delights is, therefore, a wonderful thing because once planted, these bulbs will come back reliably every year. If they like the location, they also like to multiply themselves, and over the years they grow larger carpets of flowers. That's why you only have to buy these lovely bulbs once and can look forward to them for many years.

Nutrient-rich and low in lime

As far as the soil is concerned, one has to make note that the spring types are sensitive to lime. It is best if the soil is slightly acidic. This is usually the case with woody plants and they like it if they are covered with leaves in autumn, which also lowers the pH value. Otherwise, the soil should be just moderately moist, but not too wet. Nutrient-rich and humus-rich soil suits them well. In case of doubt, dig in some sand and compost before planting so that the anemones get off to a good start.

Fragile bulbs

Here is what you have to pay attention to when buying and planting anemones: the bulbs are quite delicate and fragile. They also dry out quickly. This means that you should plant them as soon as possible after purchasing them. When planting, be careful to handle them carefully as they break easily. Also, the soil should then be pressed only very carefully. Do not stamp with your feet, otherwise, the bulbs will break! If the bulbs are already a little dried out, it helps to soak them in lukewarm water overnight before planting them.

Buying anemones

When buying anemones, one must pay attention to the varieties. This is largely a matter of taste. Those who want can mix different colours and varieties, but mostly they are planted by varieties in groups. But a little mix of types does not hurt either. Whether mixed or separated according to varieties, these spring delights like to naturalise and spread with time. Thus it is enough to plant a small group first, and then let them grow. With the windflower types, it looks nice when two colours are mixed. In the case of the varieties of wood anemones, it is usually better to grow the individual varieties separately in groups.

Propagation

Over the years, the spring varieties form dense clumps. A piece of these can be dug up well with a spade in the late spring after flowering. Replant this piece as a whole in a different location in the garden. Try not to take the bulbs apart because they are heavily branched and can break very easily. Therefore always transplant a whole piece. It is best to water the piece to be planted first so that the soil sticks together and keeps the entire thing together. In addition, the spring types can be propagated by seeds. It's best to just let them take care of themselves; they will then easily naturalise themselves and spread if it suits them.
