From the Greek word anemos, meaning wind, anemones are also known as
the windflower. Let these light and airy blooms inspire you this season.
Level of care: Advanced
Seasonality: Some anemones are seasonal, while others are available year-round.
Caring for Fresh-Cut Anemones:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
