Buy Anemone blanda 'White Splendour' wood anemone: Illuminates a woodland floor

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: well-drained, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: March to April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    In spring, large white daisy-like flowers (to 4cm across) emerge above the attractively lobed, dark green foliage. Each petal has a pink flushed reverse and they all sit around a boss of yellow stamens. Ideal for underplanting shrubs or trees, naturalising in a mixed border, or at the edge of a woodland area where these gorgeous little wood anemones will lift the spirits in spring. For maximum impact plant in bold drifts. Buying wood anemone bulbs 'in the green' is a great way to stop them getting dehydrated. Basically, the bulbs have been potted up in the autumn, and while they may be showing some signs of top growth, they are unlikely to show any significant root growth. They should however be planted out as soon as possible into well-drained, humus-rich soil.

  • Garden care: Leave undisturbed and they will spread to form large drifts. Avoide excessive winter wet and apply a generous layer of mulch in autumn.
