Jerusalem Blue White Anemone are a smokey-pastel lavender inside, colored in a way that makes it seem they have been painted with a watercolor brush, set off with an opalescent navy center. The flowers vary from more-white to more-lavender, so you have a stunning variety of hues within each plant.
Anemone grow from corms, which are like little bulbs. Figuring out when to plant is a little tricky but don't worry, we'll talk you through it! Once you get them in the ground they really are not hard to grow.

How to Plant
Soak in room-temperature water for 12-24 hours before planting, and allow a little trickle of water to run into the soaking bowl as they soak in order to increase the oxygen in the water. Plant 5" apart, 1-2" deep, with the pointy side of the corm pointing up.
Where to Plant
Anemone like good, well draining soil. Enrich with compost for happy plants.
When to Plant
In zones 7 and warmer, plant in the Fall for Spring blooms. If you live in a zone colder than 7, with significant stretches of cold in the Winter, plant in the late Winter/very early Spring instead, after your last hard frost.
When to Expect Blooms
Fall planted corms bloom for about 8-10 weeks in the early Spring, and Spring-planted corms will blossom for about 6 weeks beginning in mid-Spring.
Water regularly once the foliage emerges, and pick the flowers regularly (Bring the flowers in! Make bouquets! Have fun!) to encourage more blooms. And ask us any questions along the way.
If growing as a perennial (zones 7-10), allow the foliage to remain on the plant after blooming, to strengthen it for the following Spring.
