poppy anemone

montana_roseOctober 13, 2011

I was sent a pack of 10 of poppy anemones with my fall bulb order. I know it is zone pushing, but what advise is there for my best bet to get some of these to bloom next spring? Should I go ahead and plant them and if so, how deep? Should I overwinter inside like tender bulbs and plant early in the spring? Any advise is welcome. Thank you. They look like hard, dried-out raisins or shriveled rocks.

I've always planted mine outside in the spring. The few times I've left them in the ground over winter, at the most 2 out of 10-12 survived.

The bulbs need to be soaked before planting.
Soak in water overnight.
