Description

Italians are known for elegant design and gorgeous apparel. Now, an Italian plant breeder who creates designs with nature as his fabric has created an anemone variety that bucks the system and will set paparazzi cameras flashing. Anemone 'Mistral® Bordeaux' is a truly spectacular plant variety with blooms that reflect the rich colour of the wine that gave it its name. But true artists love an element of surprise, and the violet centres that each bloom sports make a true fashion statement that seems likely to set a trend.

You won’t find this aristocrat just anywhere. Indeed, Farmer Gracy had to travel to Essen in Germany to meet her at the horticultural trade event that’s a red-letter-day in every horticultural expert’s calendar. Luckily, Anemone 'Mistral® Bordeaux's breeder liked us as much as we admired his anemone variety, and we’re now licensed suppliers. What does that mean to you? Plant Anemone 'Mistral® Bordeaux' and see for yourself!
