Anemone and Muscari americanum. This custom mix of Grecian Windflowers and Blue Muscari are easy to plant, easy to grow and will create an impressive carpet of cool, blue tones in early to mid-spring. Height 4-6". Bulb size varies.
Plant them in groups of at least five bulbs, 3"-5" apart and 3"-5" deep.
All have the same cultural requirements; they thrive in sun or part shade, in any well drained soil. Muscari naturalizes easily and will form large colonies that persist for years.
Before planting, soak the rhizomes in tepid water for 24 hours. Plant immediately after soaking, 3-4 inches apart and 2-3 inches deep. If you cannot tell top from bottom plant the tubers on their sides. Best grown in full sun. In part shade, anemones naturalize less readily, flower later and have smaller blooms. Plant 5cm deep and 3-5cm apart.
Divide mature clumps of Anemone as soon as the leaves have died back.
