More Details

The wild, wood anemone is one of the most beautiful wild flowers of early spring. You'll see wood anemones in any ancient wood, flowering from February until the bluebells open in May.

Plant a few of these in your garden – different colours and varieties – in the shade under the skirts of trees and shrubs, or out at the front of the border in full sun. They'll grow happily anywhere, increasing gradually from year to year.

Please note: This may look like a bit of twiggy compost when it arrives (see image) but these 'twigs' are the rhizomes. Soak overnight in a bucket of water before planting and they will double in size and start growing more quickly than if planted dry.

This can be gift wrapped in our exclusive hessian sack, with ribbon and a Sarah Raven gift card. You will be able to add this to your basket once you begin the checkout process. To add a gift message to your order, simply fill out the details at the delivery stage of the checkout.

Please note: only items which are showing ‘in stock’ can be gift wrapped.

I planted these under a tree but didn’t get any flowers but this may have been due to badger digging in garden.

Planted these late winter 2014 along with anemone blanda. They produced few flowers, (unlike their blue bedfellows) but I am hoping for better things next Spring. Fingers crossed.
