Anemone coronaria is sometimes called Florist's anemone because of its large, showy flowers. Saint Brigid is a variety of A. coronaria. A. coronaria won't thrive if winter temperatures are 25 degrees F or lower. (They orginated in the Mediterranean area and are different from A. blanda, which is more cold-hardy.) They like sunny, dry conditions. Soil should be amended but must have excellent drainage. Plant about one inch deep and four inches apart.
