Useful gardening information
Fill your containers with good quality, well-drained soil. Almost any commercially available potting medium will work fine.
Site your anemones where they will receive full to half day sun.
Enjoy your flowering containers, snipping a few flowers if you like. This won't hurt your plants.
After blooming has finished for the season leave the foliage in place; don't cut it off. The leaves will gather sunlight, create food through photosynthesis and strengthen the bulbs/roots for the future. Water as needed during active growth periods, about 1" per week.
At the end of the summer the leaves will yellow and die back as the plant slips into dormancy. Foliage many be removed at this point. Your anemones will rest for a few months before beginning the next growing cycle.
TRN165 Violet Pasque Flower (Anemone Pulsatilla Vulgaris Violet )
A hardy and easy-to-grow plant, Pasque Flower blooms come in shades of light violet with yellow stamens. Use as a single specimen or in groups for a color mass. Like all Anemone flowers, it demands well-drained soils.
It is a great plant for rock gardens. The majority of leaves develop after the flowers. The entire plant is covered with soft, silvery hairs. The plant remains attractive after it stops blooming, although the leaves may die back in late summer.
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Remove old flowers to prolong flowering. Cut back to the ground at the end of the season. Anemone Flower plants are great in rock gardens or in the front of a perennial garden. Zones 4-8.
