Anemone The Governor is a beautiful semi-double, ruffled bloom with a black central disc, white centre and large cherry red margins. Standing atop 30cm tall sturdy stems above clumps of divided, ferny leaves, this Anemone is native to the Mediterranean and flowers in late winter, early spring, or a few months after its bumpy tubers are planted. The leaves die back after bloom, so we’d recommend planting with companions such as hardy Geraniums so you have continual growth throughout the months and avoid any bare spots. This is a good plant for containers, borders and will add a pop of colour to rock gardens. The flowers are also excellent for cutting, to be enjoyed indoors.

Growing at a glance…
Anemones should be planted at least 3-5cm deep and no less than 10cm apart. While they do not object to partial shade, they thrive best when planted in an area with plenty of access to sun. The richer the soil, the more flowers they will produce. They are an excellent choice for borders or rockeries, but can also be grown in pots or containers provided they are not given any heat. Care should be given to ensure that there is good drainage as these blooms are very sensitive to dampness. They are a fantastic choice as they will naturalise and multiply quickly over the years. All anemones are perfectly hardy and are ideal subjects for cut flowers, borders and rockery displays.
