About Anemones

Level of care: Advanced

Seasonality: Some anemones are seasonal, while others are available year-round.

Caring for Fresh-Cut Anemones:

  1.  Cutting the Stems—Recut the anemone stems at an angle, removing 1 or 2 inches, using a sharp knife. This allows better water intake and will extend the life of your flowers.
  2. Hydration—Place stems in buckets of fresh water, and hydrate for 4 to 12 hours. Anemones are heavy drinkers, so be sure to check the water level when hydrating. After arranging, refresh the vase of water daily.
  3. Light and Temperature— Anemones prefer cold water and cool spaces. Be sure to keep them in medium light and in a cool location if you want them to last. Move to a warmer location, and expose them to more light when you want them in full bloom.
