Anemone fulgens 'St Bavo'

This plant has poison characteristics. See below.
Common Name(s):
Anemones, Windflower
Categories:
Poisonous Plants, Spring Bulbs
Comment:

Showy scarlet to magenta flowers 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.  Likes full sun with a bit of afternoon shade in hot areas.  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; tolerates summer drought, but keep moist during fall and spring.  It prefers rich, loamy soil and a break from moisture after  bloom.  

A great plant for early color and texture in a sunny border, container, or rock garden. Excellent for cutting.
