The periwinkle blue blossoms of 'Blue Shades' Anemone are the perfect backdrop for pastel-colored tulips and lemon-yellow daffodils. Planted en masse, the delightful, daisy-like flowers form a river of blue across a bed, border, or lawn. Pollinator friendly and animal resistant, 'Blue Shades' is in its glory from early to late spring. (Anemone blanda)

Plant Information

6" tall x 6" wide. Best planted in the autumn, the rock-like tubers of 'Blue Shades' Anemone blanda don't look all that exciting. But spring's arrival brings a flush of lacey foliage and 2-inch-wide, bright blue blooms. Soaking the tubers in lukewarm water for a few hours prior to planting speeds rooting, especially in dry soils. Select a site that's well-draining and in full sun to partial shade. Anemone blanda are perfect for deer-, rabbit-, and rodent-plagued gardens as both their foliage and their tubers are disliked by all three. Hardy in USDA zone 4-8, plant the tubers 3 inches deep and 3 inches apart for the best results. These plants will readily naturalize, spreading to colonize a woodland area, rock garden, or perennial border by producing tiny, underground off-sets.

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).
