Brightly colored flowers of Anemone coronaria flower from May to June with contrasting dark centers. Commonly called Poppy Anemones or Florists Anemone, they make excellent cut flowers. They are a welcome splash of color in late spring gardens and containers. Finely cut foliage complements the flowers and will die back during the plant’s dormant period. Anemone coronaria will only last one year (except in zones 7-10) but can be lifted and stored over the winter in colder zones. Here are Instructions for doing that. Our Anemone coronaria are guaranteed to reach you in good condition and to grow, but our guarantee does not cover winter losses.
Plant after danger of frost has passed. Soak the corms in lukewarm water overnight to hasten development. Plant in a sunny to part shade location in rich, well-drained soil. Plant in groups for the best show. If needed, in sandy or clay soil, amend with peat moss. Spread 3-4” of amendment with fertilizer and incorporate into soil to a depth of 10 inches. Space corms 3-4” apart and 4” deep. Water thoroughly at planting and while growing. In zones 3-6, lift corms in fall after the leaves have yellowed and died back. Let corms dry for a few days in the sun and store in sand at 50-60℉ to overwinter. Anemone coronaria will return next year in zones 7-10, but tubers can be lifted, overwintered, and replanted in zones 3-6 by following these Instructions. Anemones can be started indoors four to six weeks before the frost-free outdoor planting date if desired, then transferred outside when danger of frost has subsided.
