Anemone 'de Caen' corms can be very dry. A good tip is to soak the corms overnight in tepid water to help them get established more quickly. Plant approximately 5 cm deep and 5 cm apart. The more you plant, the better the effect so plant in groups of at least 6 or divide 25-50 or more corms evenly over beds or borders. For larger groups make a wider hole and plant more corms together. Anemone 'de 'Caen' grows best in a warm spot in full sun or part shade.
Potted Anemone ‘de Caen’
The colourful anemones 'de Caen' grow well in pots or planters for the patio/decking. Soak the corms overnight in tepid water. Use fresh potting compost and add a layer of gravel or hydro-pellets first. Plant 5 cm deep, closer together than when planted in the garden. You can create colourful pots by combining (layering!) the anemones with tulips, and beautiful biennuals like forget-me-nots.
Anemone 'de Caen' blooms from April to May. During dry periods the Anemone 'de Caen' will require extra watering.
Our mixed Anemone 'de Caen' produces large, bright coloured flowers in white, red, pink and purple. A large coronet of black stamens in the centre of the petals, often a white ring can be seen around this centre. Anemone corms look like little claws.
