    Of the tuberous anemones, A. crowned is more often grown, which pleases in July-August with flowers of various colors. Group plantings look beautiful in a flower bed, as well as in containers.
    Tubers are planted in open ground in spring, in May, when the threat of return frosts has passed.
    During the dormant period, they dry out, so they are pre-soaked for 3-4 hours in warm water.
    Choose a sunny or semi-shady place with fertile loose soil. Drainage is required.
    The tubers are lowered to a depth of 5-7 cm, placed at a distance of 10-15 cm from each other.
    Before germination, make sure that the soil is constantly moist.
    Stimulant preparations can be added to the water for irrigation ("Zircon", "Epin", "Kornevin"; according to the instructions).
    Before flowering, it is watered after the earthen clod dries out and fed with organic matter 1-2 times a month. Then watering and fertilizing is stopped.
    The tubers are dug up at the end of August in dry weather and dried well.
    Store in a dry substrate (river sand, vermiculite, perlite) at a temperature of + 15-20 degrees, and from the middle of winter until preparation for planting, the temperature is reduced to + 3-5 degrees.
    After 2-3 years of cultivation, planting material is renewed.

    Japanese anemone, or anemone, from the Buttercup family, is not as sissy as it might seem. Belongs to the 4-8th USDA winter hardiness zones. But in the middle lane it is more reliable to cover with dry leaves with a layer of 10-15 cm, especially young plantings. The plant tolerates shading, is not selective about soils. Tall, so it looks good in the background of a mixborder.

    You can safely plant on the banks of decorative reservoirs. In the middle lane and to the north, it is better to plant this rhizome perennial at the beginning of the season. In the fall, you should not risk it - it may not have time to take root before frost. But, if in the spring you purchased the delenki too early and the ground is still cold, you can define it in a pot in the house. Although experienced flower growers make it easier: when the snow has already melted, they lay out the dividends in the garden bed, sprinkle with the substrate purchased or harvested from the fall (stored in the house). Arches are placed over the landings and covered with 2 layers of non-woven material. And in May, they are planted in open ground to a depth of 3-5 cm in 10 cm increments.

    There are many types of rhizome anemones, but the conditions for them are the same. They grow remarkably in any cultivated soil. They can be planted in groups on lawns, under trees, in mixed beds.

    It is easy to propagate anemones by root shoots, dividing the rhizomes in spring or autumn, in September. But the seeds can be sown now, before winter, on the garden bed or better in a container, which is then dug into the ground. Sown in spring do not germinate well. By the way, some anemones and even hybrids give self-seeding in the garden. The main thing is to notice the seedlings and not weed them out.


    Tuberous anemones are the most unsuitable for growing in cold climates. I dig them after the first snow falls.
    I dry it and store it in a cardboard box in a cool room, sprinkled with dry peat or sawdust. But it also happened that she planted them in the ground in August, and covered them well for the winter. As a result, in the next season the anemones delighted with abundant and earlier flowering.

    Light, airy anemones never cease to amaze with a variety of shapes and colors. Delicate flowers adorn my garden from late August to late autumn.

    For a hybrid anemone, the main thing is to determine the correct planting site. The plot was chosen sunny, protected from drafts, with moist, loose fertile soil. Of course, the plant also develops well on sandy soil, but it will not be massive, with large buds, and it is unlikely to please with abundant flowering.
    The secret of long blooming of my anemones is autumn feeding. In early September, when it is still dry and warm, I dilute a complex mineral fertilizer (according to the instructions) in clean, settled water and water the bushes at the root. After 2-3 days, I pour a handful of wood ash under each plant.
    After the end of flowering, I cut the stems almost to the very ground. For the winter, I must cover the tender anemones with a layer of dry leaves and spruce legs.

    Planting tuberous anemone

    Anemone tubers are planted in open ground in April-May, when a stable positive temperature is established day and night. So that they all sprouted, provide the plants with regular watering (this is especially important in the dry spring).
    Before planting, the tubers are soaked for an hour in a solution of potassium permanganate or “Fitosporin” (according to the instructions), then dried at a temperature not lower than +20 degrees. Plants are planted in a light shade, avoiding the scorching sun and drafts. Anemone grows well on neutral, loose and well-drained soil. Water it moderately, in hot weather - more often.
    For lush flowering, I use the Kemi-ra Lux, Fertika, and Bui fertilizers mineral fertilizers (according to the instructions).

    When buying planting material, pay attention to the tubers. In anemone they are well dried and wrinkled, without mold! On the original packaging should be indicated the size of the tubers, grade, height, manufacturer.

    I read in one source that the Japanese anemone for the winter does not need to be cut and covered. In another, they recommend doing this in late autumn.

    • OOO "Sad"

      - The Japanese anemone can tolerate the winters of the middle lane and without shelter. Even if there is little snow, severe frosts will hit and the part of the rhizome located closer to the soil surface will freeze, the plant will recover from the remaining roots. Who grows A. Japanese, knows that after its transfer to a new place, sprouts appear in the old spring. This indicates the vitality of the plant. Of course, in order not to lose the decorativeness of the curtain, it is better to mulch the soil at the landing site for the winter. Trimming or not is a matter of aesthetics.

    This season, for the first time growing tuberous anemones. Tell us how these sophisticated beauties winter?

    • OOO "Sad"

      - These sissies, like ballerinas, swing on long legs at the slightest blow of the wind. For this feature, the plant got its name, which is translated from Greek (Anemone) means "daughter of the winds." Anemones are divided into 2 groups: rhizome and tuberous. Rhizome species are unpretentious plants, but tuber plants will have to tinker with, but their beauty is worth it.

      For the winter, anemones can not be dug up, but be sure to cover them with lugrasil, spruce branches or a layer of fallen foliage. Refined ladies with roses in the foreground look harmonious. Flowers perfectly complement each other during the growing season, and for the winter, roses are covered with anemones. The second wintering option is the excavation of tubers. Do this in the fall (mid-September to early October), when the leaves completely dry, with a pitchfork to avoid damage to the tubers. Soak the planting material in a raspberry solution of potassium permanganate or "Fitosporin" (according to instructions) for an hour, then dry 2-3 weeks at a temperature of at least + 20 degrees. After drying, the aerial part is cut off, and the tubers are sent for storage to the cellar, after they are placed in sand or peat. Planting stock is stored until spring planting at a temperature not exceeding + 5 degrees.

    Many years ago, a brother from the Caucasus brought an anemone daffodil. It’s a pity, it develops very slowly, even normal deletions cannot be obtained. But how beautiful it blooms! Is there any way to propagate

    • OOO "Sad"

      “The only way is to collect seeds from the flower.” True, they do not ripen well every season. The daffodil anemone is very beautiful, with high peduncles (up to 50 cm), with large buds. On one stalk - according to 5-6 flowers! The leaves are large, with slightly noticeable stripes. I sow the seeds after pruning the seed bolls fresh in loose moist soil. Seedlings bloom on average after 4 of the year.

    In the autumn of last year, she acquired a planting material of anemones crowned. She landed in September, but in the spring she did not rise. Now there are anemones on sale tender and crowned. What you need to consider when planting?

    • OOO "Sad"

      Before planting nodules Anemones tender soak overnight in warm water and do not forget to water in case of dry autumn. Then they will take root well and blossom in the spring. This miniature species differs from large, powerful A. crown plants.
      Her tubers should also be soaked before planting for a day. If you drop them in the fall, they will blossom in May, if in the spring they bloom in August. Many failures in the cultivation of A. crown are related to the fact that the tubers, although capable of lying for half a year in a dry state, can perish during drying. A. Crowned not so easily takes root with us. But for many years it is not enough (from my experience - 3 year without excavation, with a symbolic shelter). Another A. crown does not tolerate weeds and in general the neighborhood of other plants.
