Description

No shady woodland planting scheme should be without these classic bulbs. Anemones blanda or winter windflowers have possibly the cutest flowers and naturalise freely over the years to create a pretty blanket of colour—perfect for brightening up that dull corner! Ranging in a soft pastel shades of pink, blue and white, they’ve been a popular favourite pretty much since time began. These much-loved woodland anemone bulbs are perfect for planting in a shrubbery or woodland area where they will show off their cheery faces and inject a good dose of colour for many weeks during spring!

This sophisticated mix of pastel-coloured Anemone blanda  colours is easy to grow and very reliable. Once you’ve planted the bulbs, they are happy to just be left to their own devices. Plant them in close groups in borders or among trees and shrubberies for a natural look the following spring. Each year, they’ll multiply so you’ll have even more to enjoy year after year. If you have a shady courtyard garden, patio or even balcony, these little jewels a great option for filling your patio containers.
