These are the large-flowered velvety flowers that some think are the worlds most beautiful. The colors are truly startling. They're the ones sold on the street in New York City and elsewhere in 'nosegays' when they bloom, along with violets.

'French' anemones can be planted fall or spring, and grow from small irregularly-shaped bulbs that look sort of like weathered wood chips. Put them into semi-shady spots, and they'll be up in no time. They quickly form short little plants, and then these spectacular 3 to 4-inch flowers on stems of about 10'.

If you've never grown them, give them a try. Your success will depend on where you plant. Be sure it's never too hot, and never too dry. They need good drainage, but insist on a moist, somewhat shaded spot.

    Comments about American Meadows Anemone Bulbs De Caen Mix:

    This has been the surprise hit of the spring! We ordered these for fall planting and put it in the difficult bed--the one under a birch tree that gets a fair amount of shade. These little bulbs pack a lot of beautiful punch. The foliage is just as pretty as the flower, and I can't believe how long the blooms last. They close up in the evenings and reopen in the mornings.

      Comments about American Meadows Anemone Bulbs De Caen Mix:

      I planted in groups of 10. I planted 100 of them. I would say at least 90 sprouted in a somewhat shady area. The leaves came up quickly. Faster than I thought they would. They lasted a while then the deer found them. I don't know how long it would of taken for them to flower but I bet they would of been just perfect if they had a chance.

          Didn't have the best luck with these at first, but after being persistent I finally got some beautiful blooms this spring. Everyone loves these, the colors are so rich, and they really last. Highly recommended!

            They make you smile just to look at them. They wave gently in the smallest breeze. The leaf is almost as pretty as the flower. The colors are intense. I plant them between other plants, such as lilies. I think this variety of anemone is the prettiest of all.

            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).
