Anemone x 'Wild Swan' ™

A big hit at the 2011 Chelsea Flower Show, this hybrid of early and late blooming Anemones is sight to behold. From periwinkle blue nodding buds, open 5 petaled simple white flowers surrounding bright yellow centers. Each petal's backside has a flush of this blue, adding so much to Wild Swan's charm. What remains to be told is that this hybrid produces flushes of blossoms early summer to fall, providing a long season of interest. This will be our first year offering this plant, and we're passing on these cultural notes…White Swan needs evenly moist soil and spent flowers need to be removed to keep plants happy all summer. The blue highlights are deepest when temperatures are cooler. A winter mulch is recommended ion cooler zones.
