Anemone 2019
« on: April 02, 2019, 07:47:37 PM »
I have quite a few Anemone nemorosa as well as Anemone ranunculus as well as their hybrid
They do not do so well in black pots under our table but survived and now when the garden is ready to receive them I ponder where to plant them
I have two places in mind
First is sililar to where I have my hepaticas but maybe a bit more shaded. It is in the south shaded by a hedge and in north there is a "lawn"
The other alternative is a slanting piece of land that is facing east and in the south are shaded by huge tuja/cypress. Here are scilla and cordialis naturally and some syringa that is budding. I also think on adding two hibiscus syracusa.

I saw that we had a very nice plant Cardamine gladuligera that I wonder if it would do well with Anemone nemorosa or if they will take over or be over taken.

I wonder if you plant out different cultivars mixed or try to keep them separate. I might have them in both places and by the bushes have them more ordered and in control and in the small hill let nature have its way

Thankful for any suggestions

Anemone nemorosa don't do well in pots for me either, although at Avondale's National Collection they seem to do very well;


I'd get them in the garden and actually think either of the places you describe would suit them.

I only grew Cardamine gladuligera for a year or so before moving so not sure how quickly it spreads but it seemed similar to C. pentaphylla which in Suffolk was very well behaved and would be a good companion for anemones. (Not so C. quinquefolia which is early flowered and lovely but wants to take over the world...)

I always think A. n.  'Vestal' is one of the loveliest Gail, a perfect white. Mine is over now.

'Vestal' is also one of my favourites, it is just beginning to flower here. It is a bit later than normal wild A.nemorosa and blue ones.

Anemone nemorosa cultivars have been flowering now for quite some time, because of the cool weather (except right now there is a heat wave here). :)
One of my favourite is 'Hilda'. it's flowers are not big but there are a lot of them.
'Willamaa Seelik' was found in Estonia in 2009, and has bigger flowers, and also white in the leaves behind the flower.
I got the third Anemone from Hoy, it is very pretty with a contrast with pale blue flowers and darker foliage. I really like it.
'Lismore Blue' has the same colour in flowers but has paler green foliage.
The last pink one starts to flower white but the colour changes to pink as the flowers mature. This is also very good increaser and flowers well for me.

Very lovely selections, Leena! Here in Germany bizarre double forms are very fashionable, but I like the effect of a well-rounded single form much better!

Thank you Mariette.  :)
I also like semidoubles like 'Hilda' or 'Willamaa Seelik, and single forms better than Monstrosa types.
This Anemone trifolia is one of my favourites, it flowers later than others and is so pure white.  :) If only it's leaves were not so similar to ground elder, it would be perfect. :)
Ups, forgot the picture.

You´re right, Leena, the surplus petals of the semidoubles add to the rounded effect of the flower. The double ones are quite different in appearance, though I like the tidy forms like ´Vestal´, too.
