These are the most beautiful anemones which have only come into flower at the beginning of October. I will try and upload a picture on facebook. The flowers must be at least 3" diameter. We live in a fairly exposed area in Northern Ireland

Of the three colours I bought this was the least outstanding, I didn't feel it was a big improvement on the standard blue Anemone coronaria "Mr Fokker", and less generously flowering.

Exactly the same as the Bordeaux anemones. Wish I had taken a photo. Beautiful for a few days and then wilt and die off.
