Anemone is a perennial flower from the Buttercup family. The name comes from the Greek "daughter of the wind" and is consonant with the second name of this plant - anemone. In the wind, its thin petals, like the flower stalks themselves, begin to sway noticeably. This property promotes the spread of pollen and seeds.

The natural habitat of this perennial is the temperate and arctic belts of the Northern Hemisphere. At the same time, anemone can be found both in mountainous and in forest and lowland areas. The genus unites in itself more than 150 different species, differing not only in appearance, but also in terms of flowering.

Features of anemones

The huge variety of species and varietal forms of anemone includes both undemanding to care and capricious specimens. Anemones, whose root system is shaped like rhizomes, are usually considered unpretentious. Tuberous species require more care, whose health and development largely depends on compliance with all the rules of cultivation.

When growing an anemone in the garden, you should remember the main requirements of this plant:

  • The easiest breeding method for anemone is considered to be seed. Usually winter sowing is practiced or bushes are propagated in spring by means of offspring.
  • Before planting the bushes in the ground and in the process of further development, it is necessary to fertilize the planting with organic matter. In the fall, they already use mineral compositions.
  • Flowers can hardly tolerate drought, so they need to be watered more often in dry and sultry summers.
  • Some anemones are especially sensitive to frost. For the winter, they are pulled out of the ground or covered with foliage.

Rules for growing anemones

Soil preparation

Before starting to grow anemone, you need to find a good place. A spacious garden bed, protected from strong winds, is suitable for flowers. Lighting should not be too intense: partial shade or diffused light is optimal. These flowers do not like overheating. The fragile roots of the bushes will feel best in well-drained and fertile soil. You can use deciduous soil or mix peat with loamy soil. Too acidic earth is supplemented with wood ash. You can also add dolomite flour. For loosening, a little sand is added to the garden.

Anemone does not tolerate transplants; this procedure is easiest for young plants. Adult bushes, if necessary, are transferred to another place along with a sufficiently large earthen lump. At the same time, it is not recommended to constantly grow anemone in the same place. For several years in a row, plants growing in one corner are depleted and may more often be affected by diseases or pests. This is especially true for tuberous species. When digging up for the winter, the spring transplant of such anemones will not be difficult.

Seed preparation

The seed growing method of anemone is the most common, but their seeds have a low germination rate. As a rule, only a quarter of freshly harvested seed germinates. To improve this indicator, the seeds must be stratified by keeping them in a cold (about 8 degrees) place for about 1-2 months. Sowing dates - from August to February, based on the climate and planting time.

For stratification, the seeds are placed in a mixture of peat and sand (part of the seeds for 3 parts of soil) and abundantly moistened. The moisture level of the mixture must be maintained at approximately the same level. After the seeds have swollen, a little more soil is added to them, mixed and again slightly moistened. After that, the container with seeds must be transferred to a ventilated place where it is kept no more than 5 degrees. With the emergence of seedlings, crops are taken out into the street and buried in the ground or in a snowdrift. The soil surface must be covered with sawdust or bunches of straw. With the beginning of spring, the container is dug up and the seeds are moved into containers for further growth.

The method can be simplified by simply sowing seeds in a street container before winter. From above, such crops are covered with dry branches. In the spring, the seeds are taken out again and transferred to the house for transplantation.

If stratified seeds are planted in the spring (summer), it will take about a month for seedlings to emerge. When sowing, only light soil is used and the seeds are not buried too much - thin shoots will not overcome a large layer of soil. There will be enough depth of 1-2 cm. It is also important to monitor the soil moisture so that the emerging seedlings do not die from waterlogging or drought. With the formation of sprouts, the plants should be kept cool. Temperatures over 13 degrees will noticeably reduce the rate of development of the anemone.

Preparing anemone tubers

How to germinate and plant anemones correctly.

Tuberous flower species need other preparatory procedures before planting. To awaken them from hibernation, the tubers are immersed in lukewarm water for a couple of hours. It is important not to overdo it - having absorbed too much liquid, the nodules can rot. After swelling, they are placed in pots with moist peat-sandy soil, deepening by about 5 cm. The soil in the containers should not be too wet. They are transplanted into the ground after the formation of sprouts.

Another preparation option is wrapping the tubers in a cloth soaked in a stimulant solution. The wrapped tubers are unloaded into a bag and kept there for about 6 hours. You can also treat the planting material with potassium permanganate or fungicide. After processing, the tubers can be planted in pots. Sometimes they are preliminarily laid out on the surface of moist soil, covered with a bag, and kept there until sprouts form. After that, such tubers are planted in pots with the shoot up.

Planting anemones in open ground

Planting tubers

Before planting anemones in open ground, a growing point must be found on each tuber. After swelling, the planting material usually has visible buds. If the buds are not visible, the slightly sharper end of the tuber should look into the ground. Even if you cannot find the upper, slightly flatter part of the tuber, it is planted sideways. They start landing when the temperature outside is no more than 12 degrees.

The depth of the planting hole is equal to two tuber diameters. Previously, a handful of humus and wood ash are poured onto its bottom. A tuber is placed on them, covered with soil and slightly compacted. After that, the planting is abundantly moisturized.

Sometimes the tubers are sprinkled with earth only slightly, until sprouts appear on them, and only then they are fully covered with soil.

Sowing anemone seeds

Stratified anemone seeds are sown on seedlings. Already slightly grown seedlings, which have formed at least one pair of true leaves, are transferred to the street. The landing corner should be slightly shaded. If anemones are sown before winter, the crops are covered with leaves or branches.

When growing anemones from seeds, the bushes will bloom only in the 3rd year of life. Some species bloom in spring, others only at the end of summer. Having on the site several varieties that differ in the timing of the appearance of buds, you can get a flower bed that blooms from April to autumn frosts. At the same time, each species may have its own requirements for planting and care.

Caring for anemone in the garden

If the basic requirements are met, the anemone will not require constant care. The main one is maintaining a sufficient level of humidity. Lack of moisture will have a bad effect on the development and flowering process, and waterlogging of the soil can lead to the development of rot. In order for the anemone to receive exactly as much water as it needs, the easiest way is to plant it on hills, providing a sufficient drainage layer. A flower bed can be additionally mulched. To do this, cover it with a layer of peat or foliage of apple trees, pears or plums up to 5 cm thick.

The soil in the flowerbed must also be periodically loosened and carefully cleaned of weeds. But you should not use a hoe: there is a risk of touching the fragile roots of plants with it.


Spring planting can be watered weekly. In the summer, in the heat, watering can be done twice a day, trying not to do this in the sun. In rainy weeks, anemones do not need to be watered at all. The only exception is the crown anemone, which needs moisture during the flowering period.

If anemones are grown in humid areas, they should be planted in high (about 20 cm) beds.

Top dressing

Before flowering, the anemone is recommended to be fed with organic compounds (except for fresh manure). Further, the plants are fertilized with mineral preparations. But if all the necessary nutrients have already been introduced into the soil before planting, you can do without top dressing at all.

Anemone after flowering

After flowering, the foliage of tuberous anemones turns yellow and withers. After that, they begin to prepare them for winter. When the foliage is dry, the tubers are dug up, dried and the stems removed. Then the tubers are transferred to a container filled with peat or sand. In autumn, they are stored at a temperature not higher than 20 degrees, with the onset of frost, the tubers should be tidied up in a dry, dark and cool (about 4 degrees) room. They can be left in the soil only if you are sure that the winter will not be too frosty. This method is suitable for southern regions. There, the plantings are simply covered with a thick layer of fallen leaves or spruce branches.

Anemones with rhizomes are considered more resistant to winter cold. The most winter-hardy is the forest anemone. It can withstand frosts down to -30 degrees.

Winter forcing anemones

If you want to get an anemone bloom in the middle of winter (January), then you will have to plant the tubers in early fall (September). You can drive the flower only until December, otherwise there will be no further result. Before this event, you need to thoroughly prepare. First of all, this applies to the tubers themselves. If they are dry, you can soak them overnight in a root stimulant solution. If the tubers are in a satisfactory condition, they are placed in wet sand for about three days. Do not forget about the quality of the soil, for this you can combine leaf and garden soils in equal quantities.

Pay attention to the pots used to distill the anemones. Their height should be at least 9-10 cm. Make the correct drainage system in the pots. When you have already planted the anemone tubers in pots, create favorable conditions for them until the first shoots appear: no light and a temperature of about 5-6 degrees. Of course, even after that, do not forget that this flower will feel good only in a cool place (about 10-15 degrees). Also, do not forget about systematic watering.

Pests and diseases

Anemone is quite resistant to the development of diseases, although sometimes it is affected by rot or viral diseases. The flower can be attacked by pests. Often, the bushes are attacked by slugs or snails. Such pests are collected by hand, and the garden bed is treated with metaldehyde.

If a leaf nematode has settled on the flowers, you will have to remove the affected bushes from the garden and burn them, and change the soil in the flowerbed.

Breeding methods for anemones

In addition to seed and tuberous propagation, new anemones can be obtained by dividing the bush. For the procedure, plants are chosen from 4 years old and older. Their rhizomes are carefully pulled out in the spring and divided into segments at least 5 cm long. You can also divide large overgrown tubers by processing their slices. Each division must have at least one own kidney. Parts of the roots are planted in loose soil to a depth of about 5 cm, placing them horizontally. Like a flower obtained from seeds, such a cut will bloom only after 3 years.

Types and varieties of anemones with photos and names

All types of anemones can be classified according to their flowering time. The first group blooms in spring. They form graceful flowers, painted in calm gentle tones: blue, white, pink, cream or light lilac. The structure of the flowers can be simple or double. But the species blooming in spring are pleasing to the eye only for a very short time and are considered ephemeroids. The bush of such anemones usually begins to form in April, blooms profusely in May, and by the middle of summer it gradually passes into a state of dormancy, disappearing from sight. The foliage of most varietal anemones can remain green until the end of summer.

There is another classification of such anemones - by the type of root. For example, the tender anemone has tuberous roots, and the oak anemone, like the buttercup, has a simple but very fragile rhizome.

Anemone blanda

Miniature anemone, not exceeding 10 cm in height. In the natural environment, it is considered a Red Book. It has several famous varieties, including: Blue Shades with bluish chamomile flowers, Charmer with pink flowers, Bridesmaid and White Splendour with snow-white flowers.

Anemone nemorosa

Not very common in the middle lane, but rather unpretentious look. Forms bushes up to 30 cm tall. The flowers have a simple structure and size up to 4 cm. Most often, their color is white, but there are varieties with lilac, blue or pinkish flowers. The eye of a flower can also have a different color. Some varieties form double flowers. Sometimes, as it blooms, the flower of this anemone is able to acquire a different, more intense color.

Anemone ranunculoides

The species is also considered undemanding to grow and is able to grow in almost any soil. Forms compact bushes up to 25 cm tall. Small bright yellow flowers of such anemones can also be double.

Forest Anemone (Anemone sylvestris)

Refers to spring flowering species. The plant forms bushes up to 50 cm in height. It has rather large (up to 8 cm in garden varieties) flowers with a different number of petals.

Summer (or autumn) species usually include Japanese (hupehensis / japonica or scabiosa), hybrid (hybrida), and crown (coronaria) anemones.

These plants have more powerful rhizomes and form rather large bushes. They bloom in August and finish only in the middle of autumn. Peduncles are also large in size: they can reach up to a meter in height. Flowers are formed on them that have simple petals or have varying degrees of doubleness. Their color is usually quite bright.

Anemone coronaria

The buds can appear in two waves: the first occurs in early summer, and the second in autumn. The main varieties of this species:

  • De Caen - with simple flowers of different colors;
  • Mr. Fokker - with blue petals shimmering in the sun.
  • Don Juan - with bright scarlet double flowers;
  • Lord Jim - with blue flowers.

It is the crown anemone that is considered the most common in garden culture. Its bushes grow up to 45 cm in height. Flowers of this species are often used for cutting.

Anemone hybrid (Anemone hybrida)

The species was bred by breeders from England. The size of its bushes can be either medium or large. This anemone is considered very decorative, but does not tolerate frost well and requires shelter. Main varieties:

  • Honorine Jobert - forms white-pink flowers;
  • Profusion - semi-double flowers in deep purple color;
  • Queen Charlotte - with bright pink flowers with a semi-double structure.

Japanese Anemone (Anemone japonica)

It can also be called Hubei. It was from this Chinese province that she first came to the countries of Europe. The stems of the flower can reach 1.5 m in height, but there are also more miniature bushes. The most notable varieties of this species are:

  • Hadspen Abundance - Forms tall bushes and creamy flowers;
  • Kriemhilde - with semi-double pinkish-lilac flowers. The inside of the petals has a slightly richer color;
  • Pamina is a German variety with large double flowers of a dark pink color;
  • Prinz Heinrich - with bright pink semi-double flowers.

Anemones: planting and care in the open field

You can easily recognize a gentle, defenseless anemone among the many inhabitants of the flower garden. Even from the slightest breath of wind, her peduncles begin to sway strongly, forcing thin satin petals to tremble. Thanks to such sensitivity, the quivering representative of the Buttercup family received her sonorous name, which in Greek means "daughter of the winds", and the people call her simply and affectionately - anemone.

Despite the seeming fragility of anemones, their distribution area covers the entire extratropical zone of the Northern Hemisphere, and some species grow even on the Arctic coast. In nature, unpretentious anemones prefer to settle along the edges of deciduous forests and the slopes of dry hills, they are found in damp mountain valleys and in the tundra. The responsive nature and external beauty of the anemone did not go unnoticed by flower growers, and today charming sissies are extremely in demand in garden culture.

Planting, pruning anemones

It is best to plant the anemone in the spring. Autumn anemones are moderately resistant to frost, but all the same, newly planted young flowers for the winter will need to be covered, at least with dry foliage, and can be used to shelter young anemone spruce branches.

Pruning dry stems from anemones is done in the fall.

Anemones look great in single plantings, they will create a decent composition with almost any garden flowers, herbaceous perennials.

As their neighbors, you can plant snake mountaineer, asters, rudbeckia, Mexican mint, stonecrop.

If you want them to stand out in a flower garden, then anemones will look great against the background of decorative grasses or feather grass.

Support for stems

All varieties of this graceful autumn flowering plant are distinguished by a herbaceous upright stem. To prevent plants from bending over from wind or rain, they can be attached to a metal support. This will help the tall anemones stay upright and prevent them from collapsing under the influence of bad weather. Thanks to their long stems, autumn anemones are perfect for cutting into vases.

The fruits of autumn anemones are a bit like cotton bolls. The fluff-protected small seeds can be harvested and sown in spring.

Anemones - photo varieties

  1. Flowers with silky pink petals, reminiscent of ruffles, are characteristic of the anemones of the Hupei variety Septembercharme (September charm).
  2. Wirbelwind (Anemone japonica - Japanese anemone) captivates with flowers with white, often curved, like propeller blades, petals. This variety with long-lasting flowers is especially good for cutting.
  3. The pink-red semi-double flowers are the hallmark of the new, densely flowering Japanese Margarete anemone.
  4. The edges and the underside of the petals of the late-flowering hybrid of the Japanese Rosenschale anemones are shaded darker.
  5. Two colors, pink and purple, combine the flowers of the Japanese Bowles Purple anemone.
  6. The deep pink double flowers of the Japanese Bressingham Glow anemone adorn the garden in August - October.

Varieties of anemone (anemone)

Anemone tender

It is represented in gardens in a typical shape with blue flowers and the variety "White Splendour", which has white and large flowers.

Dubravnaya anemone

It has several dozen varieties. Full conformity of the flower shape to the variety can only be expected from a well-established plant - newly planted anemones cannot immediately give completely double or semi-double flowers. White

Among them there are semi-double and double, with a double row of petals, with especially large flowers.

Dark Leaf- medium-sized flowers, leaves with an unusual bright brown tint. Growing fast.

Hilda - flowers are large, with a double corolla, grows moderately.

"Leeds Variety" - giant snow-white flowers of a classical form, the curtain is not very dense. "Vestal" - flowers with a double center - "pompom", dense curtain, grows quickly.

"Blue Eyes" - densely double flowers with bluish color of narrow petals in the center of the flower.

A "leisurely" variety - only plants over two years old give typical color and flower shape.

Most varieties are lilac rather than blue. But they also have their champions in color and record holders for flower size.

"Abendhimmel" - lilac flowers with a gentle play of shades. One of the most large-flowered and tall (up to 25 cm) varieties. It grows slowly. Robinsoniana is a popular old variety, medium-sized flowers, lilac-blue, light, growing very quickly. “Atrocaerulca - flowers are bright, bluish, dense dense clump, grows quickly. "Hannah Gubbay" is one of the brightest varieties, the flowers are deep bluish-lilac. Grows moderately. "Royal Blue" is the blueest anemone, the shade of flowers is closest to dark blue. The flowers are medium-sized, grows moderately.

Pink anemones (anemones)

At first, they often disappoint - the flowers open up the most ordinary, white, only the "back" of the petals is painted in lilac-pink tones. But it is worth waiting for a few hours (sometimes up to a day) - and the flower acquires the declared color.

"Marselina" - the flowers are quite large, the pink tone is bright and rich. Grows moderately. "Tild" - flowers are smaller than those of the previous variety, with a delicate light pink blush. It grows quickly, forming a dense curtain.

"Frulingsfee" - the flowers are quite large, the calyx opens white and quickly becomes lilac-pink. The "back" of the petals is very bright. Grows at a moderate rate. "Kentish Pink" - medium-sized flowers with a bright pink "back" and a pale lilac-pink tint on the inner side of the calyx. Grows at a moderate rate.

These are varieties with an increased number of petals, sometimes without them at all. They look unusual - you shouldn't expect a colorful meadow or a gentle spring mood from such exotic plants.

Rather, they are intended to be viewed up close. The flower shape typical of the variety usually has to wait a couple of years.

"Monstrosa" (photo) - white-green flowers, double. It grows rather quickly.

"Green Fingers" (photo) - white petals of the usual form, in the center of the flower narrow green petals are collected in a "pompom". It grows slowly.

“Green Dream” is a triple flower: on an ordinary white corolla lies a green one, consisting of narrow petals, and on it is white again, but half the size of the lower one. Grows at a moderate rate.

"Green Crown" - the variety has the most lush green crown, crowning the white calyx of the flower.

Anemone (anemone) buttercup

There are few cultivars, most often they are selected natural forms. "Plenifhra" - a miniature anemone, forming a short, 10-12 cm tall, curtain, bright yellow flowers, double. Antiesen - flowers are simple, large, bright yellow with shine. Growing fast.

The varieties are few in number and much less popular than the oak anemone varieties. Meanwhile, this is a magnificent unpretentious plant with a good growth rate. The flowers are of a pleasant warm creamy yellow hue, contrast very beautifully with the dark rich green of the leaves. "Schwefelfeuer" - light yellow delicate flowers, thick beautiful curtain. Growing fast. "Sioux" - semi-double flowers, medium size. Grows at a moderate rate.

The use of anemones (anemones) in design

Anemone tender is suitable for the foreground of flower beds. It grows slowly, so it should be planted in groups of several plants. In miniature compositions with medium-sized shrubs, conifers or perennials, one group is enough; in extended flower beds, it is better to plant several groups. You should not plant this species next to perennials that require frequent division or transplantation, so as not to disturb the anemone unnecessarily.

Anemones oak, buttercup and LIP-siensis suitable for any composition in partial shade: imitation of a forest edge, foreground or middle ground of a shady flower garden, "carpet" under trees or shrubs, a fern garden, etc. All varieties are excellently combined with each other in color. Green-flowered anemones are most suitable for planting in the foreground in collector's gardens.

The Ud anemone can be set free in the natural-style shady garden.

Features of growing anemone

Perennial, beautiful flower Anemone from the buttercup family is translated as "Daughter of the Winds", because it is fragile. It spread to the Northern Hemisphere, including the Arctic. There is an ancient Greek legend that Anemone grew out of the tears of Aphrodite, mourning her beloved who was killed.

Flower varieties are very different, some require care, others do not, this is due to the fact that some have rhizomes, others have tubers. There are more than 170 varieties of Anemone, however, only a few are known.

"Anemone tender" is a stunted representative, spreads in the Caucasus, Asia Minor, the Balkans. The plant looks good when decorating rocky gardens. Since the peduncle is fragile, it is recommended to plant it where there is no strong wind. The flower needs care.

"Anemone oak" flower is often used for medicinal purposes, its species is called endangered, so it is listed in the Red Book. The flower is often compared to a snowdrop. The first warmth will be marked by how this flower blooms. It reaches 20 cm in height. It begins to bloom from April to May. Good because it is unpretentious.

"Anemone flying" perennial plant up to 30 cm high. It blooms for about 20 days, has a variety of colors. The plant lives from 40 to 60 years, due to vegetative reproduction. Perfect for growing on the site.

"Summer flowering anemones" are represented by such species as canadensis, forest, fork. They are distinguished by a powerful root system that is well branched. Flowering occurs from late summer to mid-autumn.

"Anemone crown" grows well with moderate moisture, up to 40 cm high, has different shades. The flower loves light, can withstand temperatures up to minus five, it does not tolerate winter well. The plant can be grown as an annual.

Anemones can be planted in the garden and in pots at home. In order not to injure the plant, it is worth deciding on the planting in advance.

Please note that it cannot be planted in acidic soil; before that, dolomite flour, wood ash must be added to it. The ground should be loose, choose a place in the penumbra. To plant an Anemone flower, it is necessary that the seedlings have at least two leaves.

Anemone needs care that will not burden the gardener. After planting, it must be mulched; peat and foliage are suitable for this. This is done in order for the weeds to grow more slowly, the moisture persists longer.

Moisture is important for a flower, it must be maintained. Lack of moisture will affect the root system.

It is recommended to feed, but not often, it is better to do this during flowering, because it is depleted. Mineral fertilizer is suitable for this.

Anemone flower will become a real decoration of the garden.

White stunted perennials

Probably the most popular low-rise perennial with white flowers is the lily of the valley. Its delicate appearance can touch the soul of any grower. Blooming in May, the lily of the valley envelops the garden with a pleasant, heady aroma, and its snow-white flowers peeping out of the abundant green leaves give the garden a unique tenderness.

In early spring, after the snow melts, snowdrops and hellebore are the first to appear in the garden. They are undemanding to care for, and their delicate inflorescences invoke spring warmth into the house. It is better to plant these representatives of the flora in well-drained soil, in lighted areas of the garden.

Snowdrops are being replaced by crocuses. It is preferable to plant crocuses in a sunny place, where the flowers will be larger and the leaves will acquire a brighter green color. Previously, the species of primroses are distinguished by the fact that after a period of flowering, their foliage disappears, making it possible for the rhizome to develop.

In the middle of spring, primroses are replaced by other, no less bright representatives of snow-white perennial plants.

Low-growing white garden perennials can also be represented by the following plants:

  • Perennial bell white. A herbaceous plant belonging to the Kolokolchikov family. The shape of the flower resembles a miniature bell. The raceme or paniculate inflorescence is dotted with small, snow-white flowers. It prefers to grow in full sun and well-drained soil. Does not tolerate excessive soil moisture, begins to hurt, and dies. The maximum height of the bush reaches 30-35 cm. It can bloom almost all summer.
  • Spanish scream belongs to the bulbous species... The maximum plant height is about 50 cm. Small bell flowers are collected in racemose inflorescences. The lush long foliage disappears a month after flowering, allowing the development of the tubers. The flowering period is April-May. It is preferable to plant these white perennials in a semi-shaded space, in a soil enriched with fertilizers.
  • Crown anemone... A graceful flower that reaches a height of 45 centimeters. A large poppy-shaped flower, richly decorated with black stamens, flaunts on the upright stem. Anemone goes well with other crops in group plantings, it is used to decorate alpine slides, flower beds.
  • Trillium... White garden flower perennial with graceful flowers that have six pointed petals. The foliage is rounded with a pointed tip. Blooms in April-May. Prefers a shaded, semi-shaded space, well-moistened soil. Trillium feels great among large coniferous trees, it can become an irreplaceable companion of coniferous alleys and other plantations.
  • Astrantia... A bright representative of the umbrella family. A feature of the flower is its incredibly beautiful flowers, visually resembling space stars, located on straight stems. The height of a low-branched bush can reach 90 cm. There are also species whose height does not exceed 15 cm. The foliage is collected in basal rosettes and has a finger-ovate appearance. Astrantia belongs to long-flowered flowers, the flowering period lasts from May to September.
  • Evergreen Iberian... It has powerful, branchy shoots, the height of which reaches about 40 cm. During the flowering period, the bush is abundantly strewn with snow-white flowers (up to 5 cm in diameter). It is preferable to plant in a nutritious, well-moistened soil in a well-lit area of ​​the garden.

Types of anemone or anemone

There are both relatively unpretentious varieties in care and more demanding ones. Basically, the division occurs according to the shape of the root system into two large groups:

  • rhizome (more hardy)
  • tuberous.

Florists use mainly 4 types of flower crops. Let's describe them.

Forest Anemone (Anemone sylvestris)

A half-meter bush with single double or regular buds. The flower reaches 6-8 cm in diameter.

The leaf plates are large, and the cuttings are long.

Anemone coronaria

The flower reaches 30 cm in height. Buds with rosette-like leaves 6 cm in size are different in color.

In the center of the flower there is a black pistil and stamens.

Anemone Hubei or Japanese (Anemone Hupehensis var.japonica)

A bush with dark leaves and colors ranging from pale to rich color grows up to 40 cm.

Buds in groups are loose inflorescences. It blooms from the second summer to mid-autumn.

Anemone blanda

Stunted (up to 20 cm), refers to shrubs. The leaves are openwork, the inflorescences resemble chamomile.

There are species not only double or simple, but also at their intersection - semi-double.
