Wordless Wednesday—Anemone

My garden’s first anemone, the sole survivor of 40 planted last year. This is Anemone coronaria ‘Governor’ (Governor Double Poppy Anemone). I had envisioned a red border, but a spot of red is a starting point.

      Funny but I hadn’t made the name association, Stepheny. I mail-ordered these for spring last year but they were very late being shipped. By the time they arrived it was hot and most of them never established at all. I’ll try again.

      Hi Julie, didn’t mean to leave you hanging. I mail-ordered these for spring last year but they were very late being shipped. By the time they arrived it was too hot and most just fizzled. They shipped as corms, which I did presoak. I love these so will try them again.

    I love the flower but I’m sorry it’s the only one but that’s gardening. Happened to me with Fritillaria verticillata. We just keep trying!!!

    As the name suggests it looks very much like a poppy in the middle – I love it! Did the others get eaten by something? I planted loads of mixed anemones last autumn and haven’t seen a single plant yet….

      Only about 6 anemones came up at all. I think the company shipped them too late and they didn’t have time to get established before it got very hot. Sorry you had a similar experience. They’re supposed to be easy to grow…

    This happens to me with these lovely Anemones. I think they are gorgeous but I never seem to get the masses I plan. Just the odd tantalising few.

      Oh, the blue and the white ones were what I really wanted and I added the red on a whim. None of the blue or white ones made it. I’m going to get some more in the fall.
