The anemone is a plant with tuberous root with deciduous leaves native to Greece and Turkey. The tubers are small, 3-4 cm in diameter; in April-May they produce numerous white, pink, lilac or blue daisy flowers, with a yellow center; the flowering lasts a few weeks, and usually the anemones are buried in bunches, so as to create a spot of color in the garden. The leaves are dark green, deeply lobed. They act as ground cover, growing in number from year to year, growing about 15-20 cm in height and 7-10 cm in width. When the plant reaches an excessive development, it is possible to proceed with the pruning and the removal of the dry or damaged parts. Anemones are particularly appreciated species for embellishing terraces and balconies of the house during the summer.


Anemones adapt to all light conditions, however preferring at least a few hours of sun a day, often they produce few flowers in the complete shade. If you wish to enjoy the splendid flowering of this plant, it will be sufficient to guarantee the best crop conditions to the anemone. They do not fear the cold, since the tuber spends the winter in vegetative rest; in cold periods they can be left at home, also because they often show a better development starting from the second year of the plant. The best place to plant anemones is often the base of trees or shrubs with deciduous leaves, so they will have full sun in winter and spring and half shade in the hottest periods of the year.


As for watering, they are plants that do not need large amounts of water as they can easily withstand short periods of drought. During the vegetative period it is however good to water them regularly, especially during flowering. During the spring season provide specific fertilizer for bulbous plants.


These are plants that like loose, deep, very well drained and rich in organic matter soils. The small tubers must be buried at a depth of 5-10 cm, leaving them to soak for about 12 hours before proceeding to bury them; the anemones are buried preferably at the beginning of autumn, in September-October, if buried in spring they will flower the following year and must have a little patience.


The reproduction of the bland anemone takes place by seed, using the fresh seeds in the spring or autumn season, directly at home; the flowers of bland anemone they usually produce many seeds and tend to be self-seeded, the new seedlings will flower from the second year of life. Usually the anemones multiply by removing the shoots from the tubers, preferably at the beginning of the autumn season.
