Anemone blanda

DedekindDedekind Posts: 171
Hi, 

Just bought two pots of anemone blanda.. after flowering, extremely cheap so I said why not? 

After reading a bit, they can spread too much and be invasive, is this true? How easy are they kept under control? Had no idea they were bulbs either.

    They do spread if you are lucky, but so what? They will disappear fairly quickly after flowering. The answer is to remove the seed heads which will slow their increase down.

    I have them in the garden and I wouldn't call them invasive. They'll self seed around but not excessively so. It's not like unleashing muscari in your garden.

    Thanks, muscari is exactly what I had in mind because I have those in the front garden.. was afraid something similar would occur but apparently not :)

    I save and sow the seeds rather than letting them drop naturally. Like most members of that family the seeds do need to be sown fresh though.

    Ours do spread but we love them and ever year we see more in flower in small areas of the garden.
    Never had to save seeds just let them do what they want to.
