World's Smallest Anenome

These plants are actually smaller than the corms I planted last year. Yes, I gave them bulb food when I planted them. I found the package, and it really doesn't have a species on it. Has anyone ever experienced this?

RE: World's Smallest Anenome

What colour were the flowers on the package picture? I think it may be Anemone blanda. They often come up with burgundy foliage. They will get a little larger as they develop but no more than about 4 - 6 inches tall.

RE: World's Smallest Anenome

Flora - blanda rings a bell. And the package did say about 6", so this perhaps is it. The hard part will be protecting the plants when the main season plantings come in!!

Thanks, Nancy.

RE: World's Smallest Anenome

They will die down naturally as the summer comes in so no need to worry about protecting them, although you might want to mark where they are.

Not exactly as advertised - I guess they'll be better next year!! Thanks.

Yes - those are A blanda. And it says so right at the top.
