Alice, most of the well known anemones are generally pretty easy tp grow.....the Japanese type especially so;  they can take over your garden if happy there.  Here, for example, they were invasive and it took me 3 years to finally eradicate them.  


Wild Swan is a relatively new hybrid and does require better conditions to grow well

Rhubarb demands rich well fed soil and good moisture in summer chloemoody.   


check your soil.....is it poor?  


Do you feed it?


A thick mulch in autumn or early spring will help.......a mixture of pelleted chicken manure/ dried cow manure/ well rotted farnyard manure plus fish blood and bone

No, rich sandy loam fidget.  Don't  think they would last a few weeks in sand.
