Single, daisy-shaped flowers in blues that range from sky to amethyst. They show in mid-May here in Northwest Connecticut on 3-6in stems. Superb used as an underplanting for midseason Tulips.
The daisylike flowers of Anemone blanda belong in every garden because they are inexpensive and easy to grow and are the perfect foil for late Daffodils and all the May-blooming Tulips. Their diminutive stature also makes them ideal for carpeting shrub borders and naturalizing in the lawn. All these delightful bulbs need are well-drained soil and plenty of sunshine before the trees leaf out. For best effect, plant with a lavish hand.
