It’s Week 15 of The Blooms!
My favourite arrangement so far! Again all the ingredients are from my garden and cutting patch. I can safely say I’m in love with my home grown anemone’s. It’s the first time I’ve ever grown them and I can’t get over how pretty they are with their poppy like flowers, dark centres, and beautifully rich coloured leaves.
And I have to say they were pretty easy to grow. I planted the corms direct into a large pot last fall. They started sprouting shoots in February and I had flowers by April. The great thing about anemone’s is that unlike other bulbs that produce one or maybe two flowers, they keep producing flowers for a couple of months. So look out for more to come! Another advantage of anemone’s is that they don’t have a specific planting time. I’ve just had another variety delivered and plan to plant these ASAP.
Other little extras I love in this arrangement beside the double peony and apricot foxx tulips which also featured in last weeks arrangement, are bleeding heart (a shade loving perennial), a viridiflora tulip called spring green, and one of the last magnolia blossoms from my magnolia tree.
Full ingredient list includes Anemone Coronaria (Sylphide), Tulips (Spring Green), Tulips (Apricot Foxx), Tulips (Mount Tacoma Double Peony), Magnolia Blossom, Blueberry Blossom, Pieris, Euonymus, and Bleeding Heart.
