Anemone 'Wild Swan'

Windflower

Hardy Perennial

  • Award winning new anemone, a Chelsea champion
A truly beautiful perennial, and winner of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2011 Plant of the Year title. Trialled over a 10 year period, Anemone 'Wild Swan' is a cross between early and late flowering anemones and as such, the unique flowers bloom intermittently from April right through to the autumn. Each elegant white flower is backed with pretty blue streaks that look particularly eye catching when the flowers nod closed in the mornings and evenings. A superb perennial for borders and woodland gardens with a neat, compact habit. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 60cm (24")

Ideal For:
cottage gardens, wildlife gardens, woodland garden
Flowering Period:
April, May, June, July, August, September, October
Position:
sun or semi shade, dappled shade

Pot up using free-draining compost, and grow anemone plants on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outside. Once they are well grown, acclimatise anemones to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before planting out on moist fertile, well drained soil in sun or dappled shade. Anemone plants dislike wet ground, particularly during winter. Improve soil conditions by adding plenty of well rotted manure or compost prior to planting.
Feed and water anemones regularly throughout the growing season. Cut back anemone flowers as they fade. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of anemones in spring.

  1. Disappointed

    By Julie Taylor 21-07-2014

    I nurtured the plant, potting on, acclimatising and eventually planting in free draining soil. Within a week it had died. Any ideas?
