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.
