Blue Shades Anemone brings delightful, low-growing periwinkle blooms to the landscape in early to mid spring. Quick to spread and loaded with flowers, plant these daisy-like blooms to surround taller plants like tulips and daffodils with a carpet of color. Also called "windflower", Anemones are easy to grow and unappealing to most animals, including deer, rabbits and rodents. (Anemone)

Bloom Time
Early to mid spring


6" tall x 6" wide. 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 is 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 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.
