Description

Salute the magnificent ‘Double Lord Lieutenant’ as he appears in his regalia of lustrous navy blue, commanding the spring garden. Capturing all the vivid beauty of other blue Anemones with the benefit of double the number of petals, this cultivar boasts large, ruffled, multi-layered blooms. Trimmed by a ruff of deeply lobed, ornate foliage, the splendid indigo petals surround a velvety black button centre. The piercing blue blooms are a handsome addition to containers, borders, and beds. Sturdy stems and abundant, dramatic blooms make wonderful, long-lasting cut flowers – be sure to snip a few stems to savour indoors.

Care Guide

To grow Anemones successfully, select a partly shaded area with well-drained, humus-rich soil. Pre-soak corms overnight in tepid water, planting 5-8cm deep and 15cm apart the following day. Keep soil consistently moist without waterlogging and feed with dilute liquid seaweed every week during flower production. Graceful stems of open-faced blooms rise to heights of 15-30cm between March and June. The delicate flowers are wonderful for cutting and arranging. Can be grown undercover in a greenhouse or polytunnel for earlier flowers and may also be grown in containers or crates.
