Mixed shades of blue. Ideal ground cover. Anemone will grow in a wide range of soils provided there is good drainage. They like sunshine or partial shade and good supply of humus such as leaf mould or compost. Excellent for naturalising in borders, containers, rockeries, wild gardens and woodland. Soak the corms in water for 3 hours before planting as this helps them to establish. De Caen and St Brigid grow well with Ranunculus.
