  • Anemones will require some patience as they bloom in spring.
  • Some gardeners prefer to start the corms in seedling trays and transplant into the garden later in the season.
  • Great as a cut flower. 
  • Plants will carry over for several seasons but you will get the best display of blooms from newly planted corms.
