Mar-Jun

Spreading.
Floret

Where soil is not moist, soaking the tubers in lukewarm water for about 24 hours will speed start of growth. Once started, plants must be given adequate moisture until flowering is past and foliage begins to die down.

12 x 6
(30 x 15)

Natural habitat is sandy soil enriched by leaf mould in established woodlands, where they receive both full sun and part shade.
In light sandy soils an addition of peat with bone meal and dried blood helps.
 

Dark Green
Does not grow well in gardens in cooler climates, prefers warmth. Ok outside in South of England and Holland.

Plant tubers 3 inches (7.5 cm) deep and spaced about 3 inches apart in bold drifts in
Sep-Oct for spring-flowering;
Mar/Apr for
Jun-Jul flowering;
May-Jun for
Sep flowering.

Between June and August, lift and divide tubers after foliage has died down every 2 or 3 years.
 

Well-drained Chalk, Sand
Full Sun
Moist.
Mulch with fallen autumn leaves to provide frost protection and food during the winter with moisture retension in the summer.
This is the cut flower of early spring found at the florist.

Suitable Anemones for the Rock garden:-

Anemone alpina
Anemone apennina
Anemone blanda
Anemone coronaria
Anemone fulgens
Anemone hepatica
Anemone hortensis
Anemone narcissiflora
Anemone nemerosa
Anemone pratensis
Anemone pulsatilla
Anemone sulphurea
Anemone sylvestris

Pans in Alpine House, Rock Garden.

Must be given protection of frames or greenhouses in colder areas.

Companions:-
Alyssum, Arabis, Aster alpinus, Centaurea dealbata, Coreopsis, Digitalis, Gypsophila paniculata, Hemerocallis (yellow cultivars), Iris (rhizomatous white and yellow cultivars), Kniphofia (yellow cultivars). Underplant Peonies (white and yellow cultivars), Verbascum, Rhododendron species, Cotoneaster, Berberis, Acer palmatum, Deutzia gracilis and Weigela.

Anemone

Deciduous Tuber.
3 Groups -

See further details about Anemones in Allium Anemone Gallery. My suggestion for Anemones in the UK: Plant in 6 inch (15 cm) pot and plunge in outside bed after frost has passed, let them flower and then lift them and place in cold frost-free greenhouse during the winter without watering them.

2-4 inch (5-10 cm) wide basal prostrate rosette of grey-green. Leaves leathery spatulate with hairy margins from which on a 6-inch stem are borne the flowers.

A high alpine species is native from gravelly slopes, valleys; 1800-3200 metres in North-West Yunnan of China.

A meagre, very gritty soil and a position in a chink between rocks helps to keep the plants compact.

Equal parts of loam, leafmould and sand. This is a suitable mixture for plants which require a light, open, porous soil with good drainage.
Use in vertical sections of cliff-crevices and dry stone walls, on a scree bed or as pot plants for the alpine house.

anemonellacfolthalictroidesfoord

Need to be protected from competition in the root zone. Plants disappear by midsummer (Summer dormant), earlier if they don't get enough moisture. Remove dead foliage and mark location of plants; even when dormant, they need to be kept moist. Tubers may rot in very wet soils like clay or alongside streams, rivers or lakes.

Grow in a woodland garden, underplanting in a shady shrub border or a rock garden. See Nursery of Perennials, Ferns and Bulbs for Shade for other plants to put in the shade.

Native in woodlands within Eastern USA.

Anemonella

A. thalictroides

Anemonopsis macrophylla
(False Anemone)

Racemes or loose panicles of pendent, lilac and violet flowers held well above the foliage

Clump. Cup-shaped with 3 waxy lilac sepals and several rows of 7-10 smaller violet petals

Jun-Jul

30 x 18
(75 x 45)

When planting out of doors, plants should be set at a spacing of 18-24 inches (45-60 cms) apart each way.

2- or 3-ternate leaves with lobed or sharply toothed leaflets.

Seedlings are slow to reach maturity, and flower in about 5 years.

Humus-rich, preferably well-drained acidic soil. Protect from cold, drying winds, which will damage or kill the mid-green foliage.
Hardy to Zone 4. It is thus much more easily grown in continental climate of the eastern United States and Canada than in the Mediterranean climate of the Pacific Northwest.

Grow in a moist woodland garden or peat garden, or in a shady border

Linear, grass-like, mid-to-bright
green leaves. 

Tender deciduous bulb - long-lived and native to New Zealand.
Well-drained, gritty Chalk or Sand soil at the base of a sunny wall. Under glass, grow in loam-based compost with added sharp sand in full light. In growth, water moderately and feed monthly.

Excellent for the cool greenhouse, pots or Alpine House.

Zones 7,8,9 and 10 but tender in frost to -12 C.

Excellent for coastal areas in being resistant to salt spray and sew wind. Use for mass plantings and as cut flower.

Arum Family

The leaves are rolled round the midribs like flags. As they unfurl they are dark, handsome leaves shaped like an arrow-head, shining dark green in colour, and sometimes spotted with purplish marks. Foliage dies down by midsummer.

A rhizomatous perennial tuber of woodlands, hedgerows and other shaded areas on moist, well-drained and reasonably fertile chalk or sand. Plant 4-6 inches (10-15 cm) deep.

There is no known antidote to A. maculatum poisoning.

The roots were a traditional source of starch for stiffening clothes.

Use in woodland, riversides, in cottage gardens, under hedges, underplant roses and deciduous shrubs.

Apple Green.

Evergreen Perennial/ Alpine in native habitat of North America in pine or redwood forests in mesic or wet places by streams from sea level to 1200 metres.
Leaves are found in colonies or clusters as the rhizome spreads, forming mats

It spreads by rhizomes that travel on the surface of the ground or just slightly beneath.
Moist Acidic Sand with fallen conifer needles.
Full shade (deep woodland),
Part-shade (light woodland).
The leaves emit a ginger aroma when rubbed.
Companions - Ferns, Melica, Polemonium

Wild Ginger is a useful ground-cover plant for deep shade, spreading by its roots. Use foliage in flower arrange-ments. All wild ginger types can also be grown successfully in containers where their foliage can be appreciated and their unique flowers more easily viewed.

Wildflowers with the same genus name as for the Evergreen Perennial in these following lists with their Species will be added to these lists so that you can then use them with those cultivated perennials for the same purpose in your garden. Their botanical names will be in black.

The variety of plants that can be used in alpine gardening is obviously very large and very bewildering at first approach.

Whitehead. Garden Book Club. Published in 1962.

Alpines without a Garden by Lawrence D. Hills. Published by Faber and Faber Limited in 1953 for cultivation of alpines in pans, troughs and window-boxes, particularly in towns, for gardeners who have only windw-sills or verandas, or flat roof spaces.

Colour All The Year in My Garden by C.H. Middleton. Published by Ward, Lock & Co. for culture.

Perennials The Gardener's Reference by Susan Carter, Carrie Becker and Bob Lilly. Published by Timber Press in 2007 for plants for Special Gardens. It also gives details of species and cultivars for each genus.

Wildflowers with the same genus name as for the Evergreen Perennial in these following lists with their Species will be added to these lists so that you can then use them with those cultivated perennials for the same purpose in your garden. Their botanical names will be in black.

Click on required comparison page and then centre of selected plant thumbnail. Further details on that plant will be shown in a separate Plant Description webpage.
Usually the Available from Mail Order Plant Nursery link will link you to the relevant page on that website.
I started this website in 2005 - it is possible that those particular links no longer connect, so you may need to search for that plant instead.

When I started, a click on the centre of the thumbnail ADDED the Plant Description Page, now I CHANGE the page instead. Mobile phones do not allow ADDING a page, whereas stand alone computers do. The User Guidelines Page shows which Plant Photo Galleries have been modified to CHANGE rather than ADD.
