Taking Care of Anemone blanda
Mulch over in autumn. In colder areas the corms can be lifted in autumn and stored over-winter in a frost-free spot.
Note: The leaves die back a few weeks after flowering and the roots creep along close to the surface, therefore be sure to mark or label the growing position of naturalised plantings, so that they are not disturbed or accidentally dug-up later in the season.
Propagating Anemone blanda
Plant new corms in the autumn or lift and divide mature clumps in June or July.
