 The Anemone Blanda is commonly known as Grecian Wildflower. 

Its bright daisy-like flowers appear in early spring in a range of colours including blue, purple, pink, and white.

It’s perfect for naturalizing under trees and shrubs, and its early spring blooms attract pollinators such as bees.

Pre-soak tubers for four to six hours before planting in an organically rich, well-draining soil.
