De Caen Anemones are full of colour, but at a low price. A mixture of all the amazing colours; pink, white, blue and red. Ideal to weave into garden beds and for mass plantings.
With these beauties, you will have up to six weeks of amazing colour!
The handsome foliage of De Caen Anemones is light green and heavily dissected, so it appears soft and fern like. Grouping them close together is the best way to create a memorable display.
You can even cut the flowers of De Caen Anemones for indoor display. The blooms will last over a week in a vase and cutting the flowers has the additional benefit of encouraging more flowers to bloom.
Plant De Caen Anemones in humus rich, moist, well drained soil. Fertilise your Anemones regularly and they will deliver rich rewards - these small corms grow quickly and bear lots of blooms so they need adequate nutrition to flower at their best.
Anemones average 10-14 weeks from planting to flower.

You can leave these easy-care bulbs or dig them once the foliage has died back. If you do this, store them somewhere cool and dry over Summer and replant in Autumn. These corms naturally degenerate over time and should be replaced every 2nd or 3rd year.
These are great bulbs. Low care and free flowering with each corm producing numerous cheerful flowers. Well worth planting in any garden for loads of carefree colour. Also great in vases.
