Planting and flowering details
Show moreAnemone 'de Caen' corms can be very dry. A good tip is to soak the corms overnight in tepid water to help them get established more quickly. Plant approximately 5 cm deep and 5 cm apart. The more you plant, the better the effect so plant in groups of at least 6 or divide 25-50 or more corms evenly over beds or borders. For larger groups make a wider hole and plant more corms together. Anemone 'de 'Caen' grows best in a warm spot in full sun or part shade.
Potted Anemone ‘de Caen’The colourful anemones 'de Caen' grow well in pots or planters for the patio/decking. Soak the corms overnight in tepid water. Use fresh potting compost and add a layer of gravel or hydro-pellets first. Plant 5 cm deep, closer together than when planted in the garden. You can create colourful pots by combining (layering!) the anemones with tulips, and beautiful biennuals like forget-me-nots.

Anemones as cut flowerThe Anemone 'de Caen' is also popular as a cut flower as they last a long time in a vase, even up to 10 days, and make just wonderful bouquets.
