Anemone De-Caen 'Pink'
The jewels of the bulb garden, anemones are hardy corms that perform well in most Australian gardens. Hardy additions to the garden withstanding drought and coastal conditions, these easy to grow spring flowering corms will produce a bouquet of blooms which are much-loved by florists and gardeners alike. Anemones perform best in well drained soils, raised garden beds and containers. Grow them in pots for a spectacular seasonal display, or cut them for a vase. Don't let their size fool you - from a simple corm comes a mass of flowers and foliage.
Plant in autumn for colour from early spring. Corms are like dried roots rather than a traditional bulb, so plant pointy end down so that the top growth can shoot straight up through the soil. Water while active but allow to dry out while dormant. Wait until the foliage has died down before pruning to the ground. Corms can be left in situ for flowering the following year. Fertilise in early spring and again in summer to ensure maximum performance, year after year.
