Anemone blanda bears large, daisy like flowers in a range of colours including blue, purple, pink and white. It's perfect for naturalising under trees and shrubs, where its early spring blooms attract pollinators such as bees.

For best results grow in well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Plant the rhizomes in autumn to form naturalistic drifts. Anemone blanda looks lovely when planted with English bluebells.
