With their beautiful blooms, Anemone coronaria ‘De Caen Group’ are one of the highlights of spring. They are known as florist anemones as they make wonderful cut flowers.

The claw-like corms can be planted in borders, but are ideal grown in large containers. You can enjoy several months of colour by planting the corms at different times – in April for June and July flowers, in June for September flowers, and in September and October for late winter and early spring blooms (they will need some protection over winter – a cold frame is ideal).
