A simple, single anemone for shade or sun in the most perfect unsalted butter creamy-yellow.
Plant a few of these in your garden 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.
Preferably plant on mass in woodland conditions with moist but well-drained, humus-rich soil in partial shade. Drier conditions tolerated when dormant in summer.
