Buy Anemone nemorosa 'Robinsoniana' windflower bulbs: A pretty woodland plant

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained soil but can cope with drier conditions when dormant in summer
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb Size: 1/1

    Usually very difficult to find (and very expensive when you do), this lovely anemone deserves a place in the border under a big shrub or small tree, like a lilac or crab apple. It's also lovely on banks where you can appreciate the large rounded, pale blue flowers which have a striking lavender grey reverse to the petals. Hardy and very easy to grow, it forms good clumps and flowers for a long time. An old variety named at the Oxford Botanical Garden in 1870, like most anemones it prefers a humus-rich, leafy soil in light shade under deciduous trees. The foliage tends to die down in the summer, ready to re-emerge the next spring.

  • Garden care: Plant the rhizomes in naturalistic drifts 5-8cm (2-3in) deep in September or October.

  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs

Excellent in shade.


A very useful Spring plant which is particularly useful in shady areas. Like all nemorosa, tougher than it looks and needs minimal care. The pale blue of the flowers is well suited to shade.

How do I plant the Anemone nemerosa bulbs? Hello, I wonder if you could help me please - and pardon my ignorance! I recently purchased two lots of 25 bulbs of the above anemone. I have only ever seen them growing in the woods where I work so the term 'bulb' on your sales website naturally led me to think of a round onion shaped object. What I have received looks like thick black roots! If these are 'bulbs', how and when am I supposed to plant them? All advice gratefully received! With thanks Jane

Hello Jane, I am sorry if you were confused by the information on our site. These plants are propagated by sections of their skinny rhizomes, so these should be planted horizontally, 5-8cm (2-3in) deep in moist, but freely draining soil with added organic matter in September or October so they form naturalistic drifts. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

Plant spring bulbs

Spring bulbs, such as daffodils and hyacinths, can be planted whenever the soil conditions allow. As a rough guide, cover them with about twice as much soil as the bulb is deep: so that a 5cm (2in) deep bulb would need a 15cm (6in) deep hole so that it
