Anemones also make for spectacular cut flowers in the late summer months. For longer-lasting blooms in arrangements, we recommend cutting Anemone stems at an angle, removing 1-2 inches with a sharp knife. This allows for better water intake and will extend their life. Once your arrangement is placed in a container with clean water, we recommend showcasing it in an area that doesn’t receive full sunlight, and someplace cooler if possible. For best results, replace the water in your vase on a daily basis – Anemones are big drinkers! If possible, place the bouquet in the refrigerator at night for even longer blooms.
Anemones come in all shapes and colors, ranging from single blooms to double, full blooms. They can be planted in both the spring and the fall and thrive in areas with good drainage and some shade.
