Anemones are in abundance at New Covent Garden Flower Market this month! And my latest report for their website features an overview of this wonderful bloom, plus lots of Instagram posts of beautiful floral designs which incorporate them.

Name Origins

The flower derives it name from the Greek word ‘anemos’ meaning wind and ‘mone’ meaning habitation, indicating the area in which some species thrive. Hence it commonly being referred to as the windflower.

Varieties

Did you know that the Mistral Plus collection have the largest petals in the family? Choose from Mistral Plus Red, White or Black to Cenere and Azzurro.

Characteristics

Similar to tulips, anemones continue to grow once cut and curve naturally towards the light. They also close in the dark and cooler temperatures.

I hope you enjoy reading ‘A florist’s guide to anemones‘ and that it gives you lots of inspiration.
