Small nodules dry delicate anemones, equipped with impressive pictures, can be found in flower shops in autumn and spring. In this anemones have many advantages, but, alas, and a few serious drawbacks. The advantages include very gentle romashkovidnye flowers - blue, white or pink.
The flowers are delicate anemones appear simultaneously with the leaves in April, almost immediately out of the snow. These miniature plants that do not exceed a height of 5-10 cm, bloom usually 2-3 weeks - until about mid-May. By the end of May anemone leaves begin to wilt and disappear completely in June. It is therefore an ideal place for this kind of - the area around the large perennials that start to grow until the end of May.
Anemone delicate suit almost any soil with good drainage and a little sand. It prefers sun or partial shade areas. Online is usually found her three varieties: Blue Shades (blue), White Splendour (white), Charmer (pink).
Now the drawbacks anemones tender. In fact, the lack of one, but a very significant: nodules purchased this anemones very hard to get to germinate. Even though soaking in water (within 1-2 hours), just before planting of nodules 10 germinate at best 2-3 pieces (and sometimes - no nodule!). In my experience, the best results are obtained not spring and autumn planting anemones tender (in this case, the nodules soak before planting is not necessary).
But if you really sprouted nodules, the farther you can forget about them for years to come! Every year anemones will grow more and more, and in a few years, even one single plant will become a floral rug. These anemones are quite hardy, almost not affected by any disease, and very unpretentious.
If someone you know is already delicate anemones grow, ask them for a few nodules (best time to transplant - the stage of yellowing leaves) and immediately plant them in his garden. Just be sure dike pegs or stones landing nodules to the fall do not accidentally dig anemones!
