||October (flowerbulb planting time)
Anemone apennina 'Petrovac', or Blue anemone, has as the common name suggests, clear blue flowers.The flowers are made up of many small petals. The Anemone apennina is very similar to Anemone blanda (Winter windflower). The way to tell them apart is by looking at the petals and the stems: those of the Blue anemone are coated with soft hairs, whereas those of the Winter windflower are smooth.
The Blue anemone is a stinzenplant. The cultivar ‘Petrovac’ was discovered by Paul J. Christian in former Yugoslavia. The loose bulbs of the Blue anemone are susceptible to drying out: plant the bulbs immediately, preferably in a clayey or loamy soil. Land of origin: The Mediterranean, Apennines mountains
