Anemone Blanda

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 25 April 2019 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Our first sign of Spring in the yard, just before the daffodils are about to bloom.
It's been a long winter and the sight of perennials is always a welcomed sign.

Anemone blanda is a fabulous spring flowering plant with brightly coloured flowers resembling daisies radiating into the sunshine. Their effect is graceful and stately to everyone who sees them with their immaculate beauty. These beautiful dwarf plants are very hardy and will reappear each spring, slowly spreading and forming a wonderful carpet of color.
