Anemone - De Caen Collection

  • A true garden workhorse with blooms that can last up to seventy days! Anemones also make for excellent cut flowers
  • Plant them in spring for flowers in early summer, in early summer for autumn and in autumn for spring flowers
  • Soak for a few hours then plant 7cm deep, 10cm apart in free draining soil
  • Mature flowering height: 30cm

Before planting anemones, soak them in warm water for a few hours (or overnight in cold water). This will awaken the corms from dormancy and ensure they begin to send out roots immediately after planting, giving them the best possible start in life.


Plant around 7cm deep and 10cm apart. Anemones are incredibly difficult to find the right way up, but please don't worry, they will find their own way! Keep the soil moist during germination, letting it dry fully can send the corms back into dormancy.


Germination will vary depending on the time of year. If planting in autumn you should not see expect to see growth above the ground until temperatures start to warm up. Once the shoots have come up they usually take around 15 weeks to bloom.

Bloom time can vary greatly between 45 days for summer blooms, and up to seventy days when overwintered for spring blooms. With a light feeding during blooming, you can expect up to 20 flowers per bulb. They make an excellent cut flower due to their long vase life. Anemones are a true garden workhorse!
