Description

Appoint Anemone 'The Governor' in charge of organising some bright blasts of red in your planting scheme. This reliable anemone flowers in probably the most solid shade of red possible, quite similar to a wild poppy. Depending on what you plant them with, A. 'The Governor' can be quite flexible with style. It’s possible to create quite a wild vibe with these brilliant blooms by planting them among a relaxed melange of meadow-type varieties. On the other hand, for those who prefer to keep things neat and coordinated, you can use them to fashion quite a formal planting scheme.

Anemone coronaria 'The Governor' can be a spring or summer flowering plant. When you plant the bulbs in autumn, they will flower in spring. Plant them in spring and they will bloom in summer. We stock them during both seasons to enable to you enjoy them at the time of year you need them—you can even plant them in both seasons and look forward to an extended display! Plant them in groups or dot them around in sheltered borders—either way they look terrific.

This flower is a sight to behold! Anemone 'The Governor' is an absolute show-stopper, with mass of radiant red, double blooms that light up the garden. The vivid petals give way to a dark center, and when these flowers are in bloom for almost four weeks in mid to late spring, they make for spectacular bouquets. Not to mention, the leaves provide a crisp contrast with their deep green, divided and ferny texture. Plus, these blooms attract butterflies, which adds a whimsical, colourful atmosphere to any garden.
