Anemone Black & White

Striking, Anemone Black & White has a dark eye that is actually more navy than black. I think this makes it even more desirable and so easy to pair with other blooms. The back of the petals are blushed pink when flowers newly emerge, fading to pure white as they age.

These specialty cut flower types are F1 hybrids which entails hand pollination and are therefore, much more expensive to produce. These special corms are usually only available to the professional grower.

Suitable for starting either in the Autumn or in the Spring why not sow some and save some to extend your harvest!

Packet size: 10 bulbs

How to Grow:

Corms will arrive in a dehydrated state and need to be soaked in a bowl of water for 12 hours before planting in pots or cell trays of at least 6.5cm square.

Rodents love to steal your precious corms so you need to protect them until the corms develop into plants.

Growing Anemones will be new to most gardeners, so I will be providing step by step growing advice and videos on over on Instagram Stories (its free) and for busy gardeners you can now plan ahead with our Anemone & Ranunculus Handbook

Flowering:

Autumn started corms blooms can bloom as early as Mid February right through March (depending on the weather). However the cold Spring of 2021 delayed the start of flowering and blooms continued into April.

Late Winter / Early Spring started corms generally flower for us from May well into June, again the cold Spring of 2021 delayed flowering and we were still picking the last of the flowers in late June and early July.

Local weather conditions will affect the exact blooming times and Anemones will need frost protection to protect the stems and blooms from damage.

Height:

Autumn sown corms will be taller growing up to 50-60 cm, Spring started corms will still reach an impressive 45-55 cm.

Position plants in full sun.

Cutting /Vase Life:

With a vase life of up to 10 days, anemones make a supreme cut flower. For the longest vase life cut when buds are fully formed and look a little like tulips. Place flowers straight into ready buckets of water. We rest our stems for a few hours in water, this is called conditioning.

If you leave the blooms on your plants to enjoy, they will of course produce less actual flowers overall.
