Muscari/Anemone blanda. Pure and Simple spring beauty! A joyful pairing of cobalt-blue Muscari and white and cheerful Anemone blanda. Early blooming and compact, this is perfect for the front of the border. Height 16-22". Various bulb sizes.
Plant them in groups of at least five bulbs, 3"-5" apart and 3"-5" deep. They thrive in sun or part shade, in any well drained soil. Muscari naturalizes easily and will form large colonies that persist for years.
Easily grown in organically rich, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Plants grow well in full sun in northern climates, but appreciate some afternoon shade in hot summer climates. Soak tubers in water overnight before planting. Plant tubers 2-3” deep and 3-5” apart in fall. Plant tubers closer together for use as a ground cover. Although called windflowers, these plants will do best if sheltered from the wind. Keep soils consistently moist throughout the growing season. Plants will naturalize by both tuberous rhizomes and by self-seeding (new seedlings bloom the second year). Plants will naturalize over time. May be planted in containers, but should be moved into a permanent spot in the garden in the fall of the year. Plants go dormant after flowering. Foliage may be cut back after it yellows.
