Plant Name

Anemone nemorosa 'Allenii'

Anemos is the Greek for 'wind' and 'mone' meaning place, habitation. Theophrastus was the first to use the name 'anemone'; however, some authorities believe the word comes from the Syrian nama'an, the cry for the dead Adonis whose blood is described in legend as returning to life in the scarlet anemones.

This vigorous Widflower was a form grown on by the 19th century Somerset gardener James Allen.

Comment

Anemone nemorosa is native to Europe including Britain. Found growing in woodlands. A good bee and bumblebee plant.

Clump-forming form.

"A low growing plant with deeply cut, mid green leaves, at the base and coming up the flower stems. In late spring bears solitary, single lavender-blue flowers, slightly paler towards the tip of each petal, with the backs of the petals being flushed with purple. Has striking yellow anthers. Height 12-15cm (5-6")." from R. V. Roger.

Plant 2 inches deep and 6-8 inches (20 cms) apart. Further growing instructions from The Telegraph.

"Combines beautifully with spring-flowering bulbs and wildflowers, particularly yellow narcissus. Once the clumps get large they may be divided in early fall by digging and ripping apart into pieces. May become dormant during summer droughts." from Heritage Perennials.

After flowers are over, dead head, but leave the stems to die down.  If flowerheads are required for drying, then wait until the plant is mature enough to produce several flower heads, and then remove half for drying,

and leave the bulb with plenty of energy to die back into the bulb to ensure a good show the following year.  As the foliage is unsightly once it has died back during flowering, it is a good idea to disguise the base in between with herbaceous perennials.
