Description

Anemone fulgens 'St Bavo' has showy scarlet to magenta flowers that appear mid-spring (April) and last about 4 weeks. They resemble the poppy-flowered anemone (Anemone coronaria), but with somewhat smaller, narrower, and more numerous "petals." Borne on calf-high stems above clumps of divided, ferny leaves, the solitary, poppy-like blooms have a large dark central disk.  Even though this plant requires full sun, it also requires a bit of afternoon shade in hot areas. It reproduces by seeds and fat tubers and requires a warm (50-65 degrees F) to cool (28-32 degrees F) to warm (50-65 degrees F) annual thermoperiodic cycle. Keep this plant moist during fall and spring.  It prefers rich, loamy soil and a break from moisture after bloom. Anemone fulgens 'St Bavo'  is a great plant for early color and texture.
