tips & tricks (and fun facts):

  • Anemone have really fragile stems that break and rot easily. Keep them in vases with only a few inches of water and refresh them often for maximum vase life.
  • When arranging with anemone, keep in mind that the winding stems have a mind of their own. Place them in the arrangement so the bloom naturally falls where you want it and the stem will lend character to your overall work!
  • Buy anemone that are still slightly closed (they are fresher). To force the blooms to open, sit them in a bright place.
  • This flower is not edible.
