There is sure to be a type of Anemone to suit your garden. Take a walk through any woodland in spring and you are likely to stumble across Anemone Nemerosa, also called the 'Wood Anemone' scattered amongst the trees in the dappled sunlight. These are supplied as rhizomes - a type of sprouting root - and prefer a cooler, shadier spot.
Anemone Blanda, known as 'windflower' will open wide with the strength of the sun in your borders, and will be happy to rest there all summer. Arriving as corms - an underground stem - a good soak overnight before planting is required. For cut flowers, the vividly coloured Anemone De Caen is very popular.
