||October (flowerbulb planting time)
Anemone nemorosa, commonly known as Wood anemone, is a very suitable stinzenplant for under deciduous trees and shrubs, or for in a stinzen-meadow. The white colour of the Wood anemone combines well with many other bulbs, such as Siberian squill (Scilla siberica) and Fumewort (Corydalis solida).
Anemone nemorosa needs a light and humus-rich soil. When gardening on clay it's best to improve the structure of the soil by mixing in some woodchips and leafmould or compost before planting the rhizomes.
If possible, it's best to buy lots of Anemone rhizomes and to plant them close together. Flowering is usually disappointing in the first year, but if Wood anemone is planted in the right spot, it'll increase vegetatively after only a couple of years to form a good patch.
The loose rhizomes of Anemone nemorosa are prone to drying out: we therefore pack them in a perforated bag with soil. Please plant them as quickly as possible. However, if neccessary they can be stored for a short while in the fridge (frost free!).
