Anemone is a genus in the buttercup family, Ranunculaceae, and bears a resemblance to buttercups. They grow mostly in northern regions and mountainous areas. Many are spring flowering or flower in early summer, but some flower later in the season, such as Anemone huphensis.
Division in spring.
Seed – needs cold stratification, best sown in September - November.
Seed has short viability so is best refrigerated until it is sown.
Seed just covered and stored for 2-4 weeks at 22°C (72°F) and then it‘s moved outside until germination. Germination can be slow, seed may germinate a year later, so it‘s important not to throw it away prematurely. Optimum germination temperature is 18-20°C (64°F) so it‘s best to move it inside in March.
A medium sized perennial with pure white flowers in six-flowered, flat clusters. It is quite hardy, but grows best in sun or partial shade in humus-rick, fertile, well drained soil.
