About Blue - Anemone Bulbs

Anemone coronaria

Seed Type Corm
Plant Type De Caen
Also known as Poppy Anemone, Spanish Marigold, Windflower, Crown Windflower

We love these gorgeous blue anemonies (pronounced "de cahn" or "de cayn"). They look like velvety, purple-blue poppies, and they're so fluffy with their double-flowering blooms. Nestled on top of fern-like leaves, they'll turn your garden into a soft, sweet carpet of flowers. Their common name is "Mr. Fokker" (no joke). These do wonderfully grouped along borders, and they look fantastic in a vase. Bonus: butterflies love them, and deer and rabbits stay away!
