Anemone (Windflower) ‘De Caen’, Rainbow Mix

Anemone ‘De Caen’ is called a windflower because it seems to grow as spontaneously as if sown by the wind. Poppy-like blooms, with dark “eyes”, in a kaleidoscope of dazzling colors to enhance your summer garden and patio. Their jewel-like colors are beautiful in the late spring garden among bleeding hearts, peonies and iris. ‘De Caen’ is an exuberant perennial addition to your flower garden. Plant in mass to enjoy a confetti mix of colors that are clear and vibrant. Excellent, long lasting additions to bouquets – these are favored by florists everywhere. Plants hold their blooms for two weeks. The foliage is glossy and brilliant. Anemones are great for containers, cut flowers and borders. The Anemone is very late in breaking out of the ground in the spring, so be careful with early spring cultivation.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Easy to Grow: 1. Dig a hole 1-2" deep. 2. Set the corm firmly in place. 3. Cover the corms with soil and water thoroughly.

Planting Instructions: Before planting, soak the corms in tepid water for about 12 hours, to promote early sprouting. Grow in informal groupings of 5 or more corms. Plant corm 1-2" deep and 4" apart in well-drained soil with plenty of humus. They will grow in any type of well-drained soil, but do even better in sandy soil and in a warm spot. Anemones grow well in southern climates. Protect from frost; in extremely cold areas they should be dug up in late autumn and stored in dry sand or peat moss in a cool place.

When to Plant Outdoors: Plant in spring, after the ground warms to about 50ยบ F.
