Anemone coronaria 'Lord Lieutenant'
Great plants for a bright, showy spring display, or for cutting. Perhaps reflecting their Mediterranean origins, they produce velvety, exotic, relatively large (up to 8 cm across) blooms in red, blue or white, with anthers and stamens in matching colours. They have delicately lobed 3-palmate leaves. They should be kept dry during their dormant period after flowering; mulch in winter. They have generated many cultivars.
Anemone coronaria 'Lord Lieutenant' has intense blue flowers.
