Anemone

Anemone pflanzen

The genus of anemones (Anemone) has much to offer. In the Lubera online garden shop you will find a whole array of anemone plants. The genus Anemone includes worldwide around 150 different species, from the native forest plant all the way to valuable bedding plants. Anemones are the highlight of spring and autumn gardens.

Anemone Plants - Flowers Of the Wind

The name Anemone is derived from the Greek word "anemos" (= wind). This name is very apt because indeed the delicate flowers react sensitively to the spring or autumn wind and sway quietly back and forth even at the slightest breeze. Anemones glow in typical pastel colours. If you want to contrast the radiant whites with more striking violet and pink tones you should plant an anemone in your garden. This plant flowers in the spring and is originally from Turkey. It is also known under the name Balkan windflower.

Anemones From Spring To Autumn

Anemones, which belong to the buttercup family (Ranunculaceae), shape a garden picture with their flowers at very different times. For those who grew up near a beech forest, the wood anemones, which classically weave a delicate carpet under trees, are childhood memories. On a walk through the spring forest, the white blossoms shine from far away. The narcissi anemone (Anemone narcissiflora) replaces the spring-flowering species in May, while the autumn anemones, as their name suggests, celebrate their large garden appearance towards the end of the season. They are clearly the most well-known representatives of the genus and the actual stars among the autumn bloomers. Anyone who wants to really kick things off towards the end of the year should plant at least one autumn anemone in his or her garden.

The Autumn Anemone

When most of the flowering plants have already said goodbye to the garden, anemones provide a surprisingly lush post-season highlight in the garden year. In pink and white they enchant the beds and you sometimes wonder where they have been hiding all year round. The most important representatives of autumn anemones are the three species Anemone japonica, Anemone hupehensis and Anemone tomentosa. The anemone flowering season is sensational with varieties such as Autumn Queen, Whirlwind or Praecox. They bloom in white or in different shades of pink. The variety Praecox is one of the first to open its flowers in autumn and, with its wild perennial character, it fits perfectly into natural plantings on the edge of shrubs. Serenade in turn brings a filigree component into every flowerbed with its light pink tone. The autumn anemones are very thankful garden shrubs. They are robust and durable, without requiring much care. With the tall varieties, it may be useful to provide them with support during the flowering period so that they remain upright.

Crown Anemone

The crown anemone (Anemone coronaria) is a known species of autumn bloomer. It flowers in different colours, from pink to red to purple, depending on the variety from May to August. In addition to single-flowered plants, there are also double anemones. The mixture Anemone de Caen, which is available from Lubera, for example, shows a very nice cross section through the different colours. The crown anemones are hardy and perennial, unlike some other varieties; this means that they do not need to be dug up in autumn. In the case of non-hardy varieties, on the other hand, it is important to remove the bulbs from the ground in autumn before the first frosts and to overwinter them in a cool, frost-free and dark place. In the spring, they can be planted at the desired location again. From then on, it naturally takes time to flower. For those who lack the patience or the appropriate overwintering site, crown anemones can also be bought pre-cultivated in pots.

Planting Anemones

Wood anemones, Anemone blanda, and as mentioned above also the crown anemones are bulbous plants, in contrast to the perennial autumn anemones. If you wish to plant these type of anemones you should do so in the autumn months. The bulbs of the wood anemones look like small tubers; they are dark brown and irregularly shaped. "Which side has to look up when planting?" One inevitably asks oneself. The good news is that while most bulbous plants have a role in which part of the bulb goes into the ground, this is not relevant to the wood anemone. It has the gift of finding its way up to the light from every position. Here is a tip for the crown anemones: you will get better results if you soak the bulbs a few hours before planting in lukewarm water.

If you want to plant autumn anemones instead, do so preferably not in autumn, but in the spring, so that they have an entire season to grow well and be stronger once the winter arrives. Of course, autumn plantings are also possible at suitable locations. Whether in the spring or autumn, it is generally important to water well after planting.

Which Anemones To Plant?

Spring-flowering species such as the wood anemone grow well under trees and at the edge of slightly shaded beds. If they like these locations they will form extensive carpets over the years. The crown anemone, on the other hand, fits perfectly in the sunny flower bed or in the cottage garden, while the autumn anemone prefers humid-rich locations that are sunny to partially shaded. The soil should ideally always be a bit damp, but the anemones do not like waterlogging. An annual addition of compost ensures optimal growth. Those who want to achieve a particularly strong effect in the ornamental garden should not only plant one anemone, but rather use them in groups and repeat them in rhythmic sequence. The autumn anemones are an ideal companion for grasses, but also for leafy perennials such as Hostas or for plants such as bugbane, astilbe, asters or monkshood. The combination with different hydrangeas or Heuchera is also appealing. Caution is advised in the spring because the young shoots are popular with snails.

Anemone As A Cut Flower

By the way, crown anemones as well as autumn anemones are very beautiful cut flowers that bring colour into the house. An exception is the wood anemone and the ray anemone. They last only a short time in the vase, so it's not worth picking them. Instead, you should enjoy them outdoors to the fullest.
