The Q&A Archives: anemone de caen

Question: i need to know how to plant these bulbs. What type of soil, how often to water, and where is the best place in the yard? Got them and have no idea about them. please help.

Answer: The Showy Windflowers, 'Anemone De Caen', produce mixed colors of bright scarlet, blue, white and lavender flowers with black centers and bold markings. They bloom June-August. This plant provides beautiful summer cut flowers or bulb plants that will force well indoors for winter flowering. The cut flowers on individual stems will last for 7 to 10 days. The bulbs will do best in a sunny and warm spot in a pot or directly in the garden. The flower grows 12 inches tall. For winter flowering, plant them in a pot in September. They are hardy in zones 5-8.

They have average watering needs; water deeply when the top of the soil dries out. Enjoy!
