Plant Information

This is a magical bulb flower that belongs in every wildflower meadow. These are true wildflowers that are native to Greece, and carpet whole hillsides there in spring. The jewel-tone colors of these cheerful, upward-facing daisies make them unique and a spectacular treat every year in early spring. You can plant them in the lawn, too, like crocus. Be sure to plant a good number, and plant them close together so you'll have the 'drift' effect. They look stunning in tight large groups, and are deer resistant.

    Comments about American Meadows Anemone blanda Bulb Mix:

    This flower is considered late spring bloom, and the shipment was made on the 4th week of April in 2016. After receiving, I planted them per instruction (soaking in the luke water for 2hrs etc). I had waited for them to come up for the same year (2016), and they had never come up. I thought "ok...maybe the bulbs need to go through the cold temperature before coming up...maybe next year..". And then, this year 2017, no sign of spout or coming up at all. I guess I got the bad batch after all :( Will not recommend. The instruction doesn't tell clearly whether you can expect them to flower on the same year of shipment, or the bulb should go through dormant period under the ground for next year blooming.

          Comments about American Meadows Anemone blanda Bulb Mix:

          I planted these in the lawn under a large tree in amidst my snow crocus to carry color through as the crocus fade and it's worked beautifully. They are bright cheerful little flowers and give a real POP of bright in amidst the new green grass.
          I took one star off because I seem to have mostly blue flowers? And also because only about half of what I planted came up. However, the poor growing performance is probably due more to evil moles that have managed to escape the attentions of the neighborhood cats and our heavy clay soil, not the quality of the corms.

                Comments about American Meadows Anemone blanda Bulb Mix:

                I bought two bags a few years ago and they have made a very sweet addition to my garden and patio. I have a number of pots planted with them and I have small patches of them in my garden....little areas of shade where they provide amazing and adorable color. I've bought a few more bags to plant and pot and give as gifts. They are one of the most noticed flower groupings in my garden...I just love them. The instructions were very clear and helpful and made it very easy for me to successfully grow the bulbs.

                Q & A

                Plant With These:

                USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
