Anemones (the second name - anemone) - is a garden perennial culture, which is distributed mainly in the temperate climate zone.
The plant has a high resistance to frost, which is why its individual varieties can grow even next to the regions of the Arctic.
For a large number of plant species is characterized by the process of spring flowering. The inflorescences of a plant are capable of reaching as much as eight centimeters in length, they grow in most cases alone, but in some species of plants they are able to gather into one inflorescence. The roots of the flower are quite dense, in some cases, are found as tubers.
The most common species of anemone, characteristic and description
There are a large number of anemone. These plants are scattered throughout the world, and any variety can resemble other varieties. Elegant and simple in appearance japanese anemonewhich is actively used to decorate interiors, can’t be compared with the forest one, which inexperienced gardeners like so much for their unpretentiousness in cultivation and maintenance. It should be remembered that your choice will depend on the complexity of the process of growing the plant, the flowering period, the size of the inflorescences and crops, as well as the special adaptability to climatic conditions.
This variety is considered the most common in Europe, it can often be found in deciduous forests. The size of the plant is no more than four centimeters in diameter. Stem in height will be equal to 10-15 centimeters. Plant does not tolerate lighttherefore it is best to grow this plant in the shade. The plant blooms from mid or late April. In most cases it has a white color, but there is an opportunity to meet a light pink or white oak tree anemone. Good for inexperienced gardeners.
It is almost impossible to find in temperate latitudes due to too much thermophilicity. The shape of the leaves and black colors core of the crown anemone very similar to poppy. The plant has a fast flowering period. The main flowering time is in August.
- Japanese anemone
This type of anemone is considered completely unpretentious. Capable of enduring cold, does not require much manifestations of attention from gardeners. The plant is quite tall. Its height can vary from 160 to 170 centimeters. The flowers are quite large, reaching a diameter of not less than six centimeters. The color of the plant is pink with a golden heart.
This type of anemone is common in Russia. The stem is erect, covered with hard fibers. It blooms twice: in May and in August. It grows well on sandy soils. Quickly adapts to any indicators illumination, but it is better to keep the plant in a shady area in the garden. The view can be easily distinguished by large basal leaves.
Differs from other varieties in its stems height (about fifteen centimeters). The flowers are small in size, but can reach 5 centimeters in diameter. Blooms faster other varieties anemone. This plant is mainly distributed in mountainous areas: in the Alps, on the territory of the Balkans, and also it can be found in the Caucasus.
This type of anemone can be grown at home. The variety is different from the others by the presence of a strong and durable stem; some plant varieties can reach a height of up to one meter. Petals pretty bigas with the croned anemones, which makes them very similar.
There is a strong misconception that this kind of plant is terry.
Anemones planting and care in the open field
Anemone is a plant that will grow well in the suburban area, it can grow any inexperienced gardener, as it does not require special care. The main disadvantage of this plant is its powerful, but with all this sensitive to external stimuli and chemical exposure rhizomes, which is why special attention should be paid mainly to the soil in which the plants grow. Anemones prefer moisture, but if it accumulates for a long time in the upper soil layer in which the plant grows, the rhizomes begin to rot quickly, which is why watering should not occur more than once a day.
Plants need to lure the complex, once every fourteen days. But at the same time it is impossible to apply fresh manure to fertilize the plant, since it can thus violate the level of acidity inside the soil. Should get rid in time from weeds near your crop, anemones are not able to withstand special competition with them for the absorption of mineral components from the soil.
Remove weeds should be very careful and hands. It should be remembered that the roots of anemones are very sensitive. In order for the culture to continue to bloom normally, it is imperative to loosen the soil from above, at least once a week.
When winter comes, anemones should be covered with a layer of twigs, so that the plant can endure frosts and low temperatures. But at the same time for some species of anemone, this method is not suitable. If a growing anemones comes from a tuber, the plant can die from cold and frost, even when it is covered with branches. This is especially true for northern latitudes with a particularly harsh climate. In this case, the anemone tubers should be dug out in the fall, cleaned before the beginning of the spring season, and then placed in a special jar filled with peat.
With complex plant care, gardeners most often use mulch. Mulch is a loose material that helps regulate moisture in the soil and protects it from the development and spread of weeds. As mulch You can use compost, dry leaves or bark from trees. Mulching has a positive effect on the frequency of loosening the soil, protects the soil from the development of drying, and in the winter time covers the plant from low temperatures.
Plant propagation methods, planting
Anemones can be propagated at once in several ways: seed, and also vegetative.
When growing during the growing season, the grower must use only a small part in order to propagate the plant. Over time, a single garden can form from one culture.
In the process seed multiplication they will have to be germinated for a long time in domestic soil, regularly monitor the condition of the sprouts, and only a few years later will the gardener be able to get the desired result for him. The vegetative breeding method of an anemone is considered the most comfortable, for the first experience of growing this plant you should use it.
Reproduction of anemone through seeds
The most difficult in growing a crop is to germinate the seeds correctly. Anemone seeds have poor germination rate, even under ideal growing conditions, the plant can die. Anemones are able to grow from seed in three years, if you do not want to wait so long, then think about growing a plant from tubers.
If you decide to do this, then you should remember that for the best germination indicators, you should use only the newly collected seeds. Most worth zeal with seedlings, since the seeds need to stratify from time to time, that is, they must be processed using cold temperatures.
Stratification should be carried out about three times in 1-2 months. Seeds are taken from the soil and put on a moistened sponge or a special napkin, in extreme cases, you can use a small towel. After that, the seed is worth put in the fridge. After keeping them for some time in this state, you can freely sow the seeds in a small pot with loose soil inside, and then again put in the refrigerator, but for a longer time.
By stratifying seeds, you create an artificial repetition of the conditions for their growth and formation. This needs to be done in order to the plant became less sick, and in the future acquired a strong and reliable immunity. The stratification process is not necessary if you germinate an anemone from simple seeds, but I advise it to carry out many growers.
Reproduction of anemone by dividing tubers
If the anemone has a tuberous root, then with its help the plant can be propagated. After the end of the flowering period, the anemone should be dug out of the soil, its roots should be washed under running water and start active division. The older the variety, the better, but young crops can also produce the required number of plots (this is the name of the cut off segment of the tuber, which has some buds).
Hypothetically, the division for the normal reproduction process requires only a few kidneys, but if there are very few of them, then it is possible to divide the divisions that have only one kidney. Tubers that do not have buds will not be able to multiply comfortably. Planting tubers is in the soil at a depth of 4-6 centimeters.
The process of reproduction of anemone rhizomes. The easiest way to reproduce anemone is through rhizome division.
It should be done at the end of the winter period or from the summer, when the metabolic process in the plant starts to slow down, thanks to which the chance to survive with a cut plant is increased several times.
To separate the root system, you need to dig the crop out of the ground, remove the excess ground, and then remove all old pieces with roots with a knife. Fresh rhizomes may well be suitable for the process of plant reproduction.
After that, cut rhizomes should be disinfected with preparations against the fungus, for example, with a fungicide. It is worth starting planting a few days after cutting off the rhizomes of the mother culture. Leaves that have already managed sprout from rhizome, you need to cut a little and leave them only 2-3 centimeters on the surface of the earth. One year after the planting of the anemone plant, you can get several new plant species at once.
Plant reproduction using kidney
Renewal buds grow on the root system itself anemones, of which adnexal rhizomes sprout into the soil, which need to use for plant propagation. Maternal culture should be carefully dug out of the soil, and then make neat cuts on adventitious roots. After the process of flowering them, anemone appears quite a lot.
Cut the roots together with this should be divided into several parts, and then placed in a container with a loose substrate. The roots should be placed near the surface of the substrate to give the plant normal process air exchange. Watering is done about 3-4 times a month and only after the roots were able to give the first shoots. Planting is worth making exactly one year after digging out of the soil of the parent plant.
How to properly plant anemones in open ground
Finding a good place to plant a flower is easy. Anemones are considered a universal culture for any flowerbed because of its large palette of colorings, and also because of livability. Particular attention should be paid only to the soil composition, in which the planting of the crop is planned. This will be the main concern for the florist.
Anemones should grow in loamy soil in which excess water will not linger for a long time.
What kind of plant anemone crown
Anemone is a herbaceous perennial plant that grows well with moderate moisture. Considered geophitic ephemeroid. This means that in a short period of time the plant goes through all stages of development from the appearance of shoots to seed ripening.
Anemone starts release the leaves quite earlybecause the generative buds (with flowers) and nutrients in nodules are laid in the late spring of the previous year. In industrial cultivation, this culture also maintains early spring development and a long rest period, which occurs after the withering away of the ground part of the plant.
The vitality of the culture is maintained by tubersthat carry buds with leaves and flowers. Every year the size and weight of the tubers gradually increases, uneven bulges appear on them.
Complex in structure leaves located on petioles and collected at the base of the plant in the outlet. Flowers located one by one on the shoots from 20 to 40 cm long, which are covered with slight pubescence. Quite large inflorescences with a width of 5 to 10 cm have a pleasant, subtle fragrance. They are painted in various shades. Small seeds, covered with a short down, ripen in the fruit - multi-heel.
According to the terry value of the variety, anemones are divided into two groups:
- plants with flowers that have one row of petals belong to the De Caen group,
- cultivars with terry and semi-double buds are members of the Santa Bridget group.
Also, an anemone is not very demanding on heat. It quite easily tolerates short-term lowering of temperature to 5 degrees below zero, and leaves - to 10 or 12 degrees of frost. In the open ground, this plant can not withstand severe frosts for a long time, especially if the ground is not covered with snow. Therefore, in regions with strong negative temperatures, beds with anemones should be sprinkled with mulching material or planted in spring.
Often this perennial plant is grown as annual culture.
When cultivating this plant, it is worth remembering that it does not withstand waterlogging of the soil, especially at low temperatures. Regular watering is required only during flowering in the dry season.
Planting crown anemones
Planting anemones produced seeds or tubers.
With any variant of landing you must strictly observe the correct crop rotation, which is that the place where the anemone grew, it can be planted next time only after 4-6 years. If this crop rotation rule is not fulfilled, the plant is very sick and suffers from the attack of various pests.
The soil in the greenhouses on which this crop was grown cannot be used for several years in a row. In order to use it a second time, the substrate must be carefully steamed or treated with special chemicals.
During the entire time of cultivation the soil moisture should be maintained at an average level. Both drying and waterlogging lead to inhibition of plant development and even death. Best of all crown anemone succeeds on nutrient, moisture-absorbing, drained soils of average density with a pH of 6.0-7.0.
In the regions with a humid climate it is best to plant this plant on ridges about 20 degrees high and about 120 cm wide.
Indoor anemone crown is grown both in the soil and in various containers, which are filled with a permeable, nutritious and loose substrate.
Growing anemones from seeds
To get good seeds, powerful and well-shaped flowers are selected during flowering. In order to avoid unnecessary pollination, all remaining flowers on the plants are cut off.
Ripened seeds are collected and dispersed in a small layer about two centimeters high and dried in a well-ventilated room for seven or ten days. Store them in bags of paper or linen material.
It is necessary to take into account that seeds have low germination. Even in fresh seeds, it does not exceed 25%.
To improve seed germination, stratification is carried out, which consists in keeping the seed at a temperature of 6 to 9 degrees for 3-4 weeks.
Sowing is carried out from August to February, depending on the region of cultivation. Seeds are sown respectively in the soil or seedlings.
For sowing on seedlings choose low capacity with a loose, breathable soil with a weakly acid reaction. Seeds are evenly distributed over the surface and buried to a depth of 1 to 2 cm. The best temperature for the emergence of seedlings is from 12 to 15 degrees. During this period, should be maintained moderate soil moisture. Be sure to ensure that the soil does not dry out. After the appearance of the first seedlings, the temperature is reduced to 10-13 or slightly lower. The temperature of higher values rather sharply reduces the growing season and does not help the growth of tuber weight.
In the southern regions you can sow the seeds immediately into the ground. Sowing is carried out in late summer - early fall (August-September). As soon as 2 or 3 pairs of true leaves form on young anemones, they are seated in a row planting with a distance of 7 to 10 cm. The distance between the rows is 20 cm. During this period of time, the temperature should be between 10-12 to 16 degrees
All the time of cultivation from sowing seeds to flowering bushes is about six months.
Planting and care for anemones (in short)

Growing Anemones - Features
Among the variety of species and varieties, anemones are quite unpretentious, and there are those that require special care, and this difference is explained by the fact that some anemones have rhizomes, and others - tubers. Species with rhizomes, easy to grow, and errors in the care of tuberous anemones lead to serious consequences.
There are several features that need to be considered if you are interested in growing anemones.
- First, these flowers require mandatory watering in dry hot weather.
- Secondly, the autumn dressing should be carried out with complex mineral fertilizers, and the soil should be fertilized before planting or during growth and flowering with organic fertilizers.
- Thirdly, in winter, protect the anemones from frost by covering them with dry leaves.
- And the last thing: it is best to propagate anemones in spring with root suckers or seeds sown closer to winter. More on all these features, we dwell below.
Types of anemone
Since the anemone flower in culture and nature is presented in a wide variety, and different species require different care, let's get acquainted at least with the most common members of the anemone family.
Types and features care for anemones. By the time of flowering anemones are divided into spring and summer (or autumn). Spring Anemones very elegant, wide range of pastel shades: white, cream, pink, blue, purple. There are even terry varieties. Spring anemones are ephemeroids, that is, the cycle of their above-ground flowering is short: when they wake up in April, they bloom together in May, and in July they already retire, although in many species the leaves persist until autumn. Anemones and rhizome species differ. In the anemones of the lyutia and oakwood rhizome, the segmented, fragile, and in the anemones of the tender - tuberiform, slowly growing.
Anemone ranus (Anemone ranunculoides)
it is also unpretentious, it also has terry varieties, the height of the bush is 20-25 cm, the flowers of bright yellow color are slightly smaller than those of the oak tree anemone, it grows in almost any soil.
Summer blooming (autumn) anemones represented by species such as Japanese anemone (Anemone japonica), anemone hybrid (Anemone hybrida) and coronet anemone (Anemone coronaria). As a rule, these are large perennials, whose powerful root system is well ramified. They bloom from late summer to mid-autumn.
blooms twice in early summer and autumn. Peduncles in autumn species are strong and slender, from 80 cm to one and a half meters tall, with up to several dozen simple or semi-double flowers in different shades. The most popular varieties of coronate anemones are De Caen anemone, which has simple single flowers of various colors, Mr. Foker is blue flowers, terry anemone varieties Don Juan (bright red), Lord Jim (blue flowers).
It is known for varieties such as Honorine Jobert with white, slightly pinkish underneath, flowers, semi-double dark purple profusion anemone, Queen Charlotte, also semi-double yellow anemone. Japanese anemone is most often represented in the culture by such species as Pamina, with large dark pink, almost burgundy terry flowers, Hadspen Abundance - high anemone with cream flowers and Prinz Heinrich with semi-double bright pink flowers.
Soil preparation for anemones.
Before planting anemones, you must choose a place to plant and prepare the soil. The site will need a spacious, shaded and protected from drafts. Rhizomes of anemone grow strongly over the season, but are so fragile that they are damaged by contact, and this must be taken into account. In addition, anemones do not tolerate strong heat and drafts. The soil will suit well drained, loose and fertile. Best loam or hardwood with peat. To create an ideal structure, add simple sand to the soil, and reduce excess acidity harmful to anemones by adding dolomite flour or wood ash to the soil.
Prepare anemone seeds.
Those who decide to grow flowers from seeds should know that anemone seeds have low germination: not more than a quarter germinates, and only from freshly harvested seeds. But if you stratify the seeds of seeds, that is, you affect them with cold for 1-2 months, you can increase their germination. To do this, the seeds are mixed with coarse sand or peat at the rate of 1 part of seeds for three parts of sand, they are well moistened and sprayed daily with water to maintain the required moisture. As soon as the seeds swell, add a little substrate, mix, moisten and place in a ventilated room with a temperature not higher than 5 ºC. A few days later, when the shoots will sprout, you need to take the container with the seeds into the yard, bury it in the snow or in the ground and sprinkle with sawdust or straw. In early spring, the seeds are transplanted into sprouting boxes. But in order to rid yourself of all these troubles, it is better to plant the seeds in the fall in boxes with loose soil and bury them in the yard, covered with cut branches. During the winter, they will undergo a natural freezing, and in the spring you dig them up and plant them.
Preparation of tubers anemones.
Before planting, the tubers anemone awaken from sleep by soaking in warm water for several hours to swell, and then planted to a depth of 5 cm in pots with a wet mixture of peat and sand for germination. Moisten the soil in pots should be moderate, but regularly. Some gardeners recommend “soak” anemone bulbs by wrapping them in a cloth well moistened with epin solution and keeping them for about six hours in a plastic bag. After that, anemones can immediately be planted in the ground.
Planting tubers anemones.
Planting anemones does not involve any particular difficulties, the main thing is to determine the point of growth. Pretreated, swollen tubers show tubercles of the kidneys, and it is clear how to plant them. But if in doubt, remember: the top of the tuber is anemones flat, so you need to plant a sharp end down. If you are confused by the shape of the tuber, plant a side. The hole for the anemones should be 30-40 cm in diameter and 15 cm deep. At the bottom of the hole you need to pour a handful of humus and ash, then place the tuber, sprinkle it with earth and lightly rub it. Place planting flowers anemone well watered.
Planting seed anemones.
By the time of planting, anemone seedlings should have at least two leaves. The seedling is planted in the ground in a slightly shaded place in the second year of growth. If planting is carried out in the fall, the sown area is covered with branches or leaves from frost. Anemones grown from seeds can bloom only after three years.
Regarding the timing of planting tubers or seeds, it is possible to ensure that on your site anemones will bloom from April to November, if you buy different varieties and plant them at the optimum time for each of them.
Caring for the anemone is simple and easy. The main problem in this matter is maintaining the necessary level. humidity during the whole vegetation cycle. The danger is that when overwetting the root system can die from rot. A lack of moisture, especially during the formation of buds, does not contribute to the growth and flowering of anemones. To balance the level of humidity, you should plant the plants on high ground, on a plot with good drainage. After planting, it is highly desirable to mulch the area with a 5 cm thick layer of foliage of fruit trees or peat. Concerning glazethen in the spring it is enough to moisten the soil once a week, in the mild summer the anemone does not need additional watering, the only exception is the castellated anemone during the flowering period. Hot, dry summer water daily in the morning or after sunset.
Feed anemones preferably during the flowering of organic liquid (do not like anemones only fresh manure) and complex mineral fertilizers in the autumn. If you fertilized the bed before planting an anemone, then feeding can be ruled out altogether. It is also recommended regularly. loosen the soil and weed out. Or rather, do not weed out, but break through with your hands, since it is possible to damage the fragile root system of anemones with a chopper.
Anemones are resistant to diseases, sometimes they are harmed by slugs and snails, but the solution of metaldehyde will help you to cope with these pests that you need to pre-assemble manually. Some anemones suffer from a winterworm (caterpillar moth) or leaf nematode. With the defeat of the nematode diseased plants is better to destroy, and the soil in which they grew, replaced.
Breeding anemone seeds, tubers, division of rhizome or shrub. We have already described the reproduction of tubers and the most unpromising seed method. When dividing the rhizomes (rhizomes) in the spring, they dig it out, cut it into pieces 5 cm long with an obligatory bud at each segment and land it, placing it horizontally in loose soil to a depth of 5 cm. Such a plant reaches maturity in three years. Transplantation with the division of the bush can be carried out only with plants that are 4-5 years old.
Anemone after flowering
In the climate of the middle band with the onset of autumn, anemones need to be removed from the soil and prepared for winter storage: dry the tubers, cut the tops (above-ground part of the bush) and store in the dark and cool, placing in peat or sand. Best for this is suitable basement basement.
If you decide not to dig up anemones for warm winters, throw the area with fallen leaves or spruce leaves so that an unexpected frost does not destroy the flowers.
Planting and care in the open field: photos, the secrets of planting
During preparation for growing anemone, the main thing that needs to be understood is that during the whole life cycle the plant needs provide appropriate care, which provides for compliance with certain rules:
- For anemones, regular watering is mandatory, and in dry and hot weather they should be very abundant.
- During the entire development period, the plants must be fed: complex mineral fertilizers are introduced into the soil in the fall, and organic during the flowering phase and immediately before planting.
- In the list of advantages of anemone there is no frost resistance, therefore, for a successful wintering, it requires shelter from dry foliage.
- The most favorable moment for the reproduction of anemones occurs in spring. It can be diluted in several ways: using root suckers or seedlings grown from seeds.
Due to the large species diversity for each variety of anemones, their own farming techniques are used. It is worth highlighting the spring varieties that called ephemeroids. Their main feature is a short flowering cycle. From the state of rest they come out in April, and in the beginning of May they reveal their first flowers. However, in July, they fall asleep again. But if you create favorable conditions for the development of plants, they will be able to save the foliage until the fall. When the last flowers of the spring anemone flowers fade, you can transplant them, because after that they start to grow strongly.
Anemone transplants with rhizomes can be transplanted in spring, when the snow has completely melted, or in October. But before the rhizomes must be kept for some time in warm water. During the landing they are buried by 10 cm, not more.
Lyutichna and dwarf anemone belong to the group of plants that feel well in shading conditions. Therefore, the most suitable for planting them will be the area under the trees or near the walls of buildings that can provide protection from the sun and wind.
Crown and tender anemones grow well in illuminated areas, but they must be protected from direct sunlight. During the care of the crown anemone, it is necessary to ensure moderate irrigation, and it is necessary to focus on the condition of the soil, which must have time to dry out. If the water starts to stagnate, then soon the roots of the crown anemone rot. It is undesirable to plant an anemone next to the bushes.
How to prepare the soil?
Even before landing anemone necessary decide on a suitable place and prepare the land accordingly. It is recommended to choose a spacious area in the shade for this flower, where neither wind nor drafts are afraid of the plant, since these factors do not contribute to the normal development of anemones. Considering that the anemone demonstrates rapid growth during the season and gains a green mass in a short time, but at the same time it has a rather fragile root system, for it you should choose a place where it will not come into contact with anything.
The same should be guided, choosing a site where there should be loose and well-drained soil. Deciduous or peaty or loamy soil is most suitable for growing anemones. However, it is possible to artificially improve the composition of the soil by adding sand to it. The problem of high acidity can be solved if wood ash or dolomite flour is introduced into the soil.
How to prepare the seeds?
When the main site preparation activities are completed, go to the seeds. Immediately to mention that the seeds of anemone have low germination. Therefore, if you plan to sow the seeds harvested last year, then a maximum of 25% of them will grow. However, there are certain techniques by which you can increase germination. The desired result can be achieved by exposing the seeds to cold for one to two months. Experienced gardeners this event is known as stratification.
- for this you need to add a small amount of sand or peat to the seeds of the anemone, observing proportions of 1: 3,
- further, the mixture must be sprayed with water and continue to maintain in a wet state until the seeds swell,
- After placing the flower seeds in a suitable container, a small amount of substrate is added there, then everything is mixed and again slightly moistened,
- then the seeds are transferred to a ventilated room, where the temperature is maintained no higher than 5 degrees Celsius. In it, they must remain until germs,
- when the seeds are proklyulyutsya, the capacity is transferred to the street, where they are buried in snow or earth. To protect against the cold of winter, the place where the seeds were buried must be covered with sawdust or straw on top,
- In the first weeks of spring, the plants are transplanted into boxes.
However, it is possible to prepare the seeds of anemone flowers for planting in a simpler way: for this will need boxes of earthin which seeds are sown, after which these containers are buried in the area. As a result, being in the open air during the winter, the effect of natural stratification will be ensured. With the onset of spring will only remove the box and transplant flowers.
How to prepare the tubers?
Before planting flowers anemone with tubers, it is necessary to bring it out of rest. This will require a container in which warm water is poured, and then tubers are placed there for a couple of hours. At the first signs of swelling, flowers are transplanted into pots, pre-filled with sand-peat mixture. The tubers need to be buried no more than 5 cm. When this operation is completed, it is necessary to ensure that the soil remains moist all the time.
You can also offer another method of preparing anemone tubers for planting.
- you need to take a cloth, moisten it in a solution of Appin, and then place the roots in it,
- then it is wrapped in a plastic bag and left for five to six hours,
- after this time, you can transplant in pots.
How to plant tubers?
When growing flowers anemone with tubers, the main thing - to correctly determine the point of growth. To do this, you must carefully inspect the tuber - the upper part should have a flat surface, and the lower part - pointed. If pre-sowing events were carried out for tubers and they had time to swell, then tubercles of the kidneys will be present. Sometimes it is difficult to determine the shape of the tuber, in this case when planting they must be placed sideways.
Then they prepare a pit for sowing: its diameter should be 40 cm, and its depth should be about 15 cm. First, two handfuls of a mixture of ash and humus should be poured onto the bottom. After that, the tuber is placed there, and on top of it it is covered with earth and slightly tamped. In conclusion, it is necessary to moisten the soil.
To carry out planting anemone seedlings in pots is possible only at the onset of a favorable moment. It can be determined by the fact that the seedlings formed two true leaves. The haste with a transplant will not benefit the anemone, since in the future it will be necessary to pay more attention to it during care. During the fall of the flowers in the fall protection from cold is required from fallen leaves or hay. When growing anemone flowers from seeds, one will have to be very patient, since the first flowers will appear only for 3-4 years.
Если необходимо обеспечить цветение анемоны в течение всего сезона, то следует очень тщательно подойти к выбору сортов. Они должны отличаться сроками цветения, а высадку их необходимо проводить в подходящее время.
Как правильно ухаживать за анемоной?
After the planting of anemone flowers is completed, they begin to care for it. Particular attention should be paid to soil moisture. Watering should be moderate, because when water stagnates roots will begin to rot. No matter the plant will feel if it receives less moisture, as it will not have the strength for normal growth. In some cases, plants will not be able to tie buds at all. To ensure the optimum level of soil moisture can be, if you plant flowers on a hill and provide high-quality drainage. The mulching of the soil has a positive effect. Peat or leaves of fruit trees can be used as a material. The mulch itself is laid on the soil in the root zone with a layer of 5 cm.
In spring, the need for water in flowers is low, so you can restrict yourself with watering once a week. A similar irrigation regime is provided in summer, provided that the weather is cool. In the heat of the anemone must be watered every day before sunrise or after sunset.
At the beginning of mass flowering anemone will spend a lot of effort, so it will have to provide supplements. However, it is undesirable to use fresh manure for this purpose. In the fall, fertilizing is carried out with complex mineral fertilizers. In those cases, if fertilizers were introduced into the soil before planting, it will not be necessary to conduct additional feeding.
Anemone in our country is widespread, so many of our gardeners are well acquainted with its decorative properties, as well as the characteristics of cultivation and care. However, beautiful photos of anemone flowers does not mean that it will be easy to grow. Here there are certain nuanceson which the success of this event largely depends. When growing anemones in open ground, it is important not only to find a suitable site that should match the variety of anemone, but also to provide appropriate care.
First of all it concerns watering, which should be regular. If the flowers are watered with long pauses, subsequently compensating for their increased moisture consumption, this will not benefit the anemone, since an excess of water will cause root rot. Because of this, it can not only stop blooming, but also perish.
Features of growing
There are a large number of species and varieties of anemones, while some of them are unpretentious to the growing conditions, while others on the contrary should provide special care. And the thing is that some species are tuberous, and others - rhizomatous. Just rhizomatous species are distinguished by their unpretentiousness and ease of care, while the tuberous species can suffer greatly if they are not properly looked after. There are several features of growing such a flower that you need to know:
- In dry and very hot weather, they must be watered.
- In the fall, flowers should be fed with complex mineral fertilizers, and before planting and in the process of actively growing or flowering, organic matter should be added to the soil.
- To prevent the plants from freezing, in winter they should be covered with a layer of fallen leaves.
- The easiest way to propagate this plant with seeds, while they are sown before winter, or root suckers in the spring.
How to prepare the ground
Before embarking on the immediate landing of anemones, you should find the most suitable site, and also prepare the ground. A suitable site should be spacious, is in partial shade and be protected from drafts. Strongly growing rhizome is very fragile, they can even harm the contact. In addition, these colors can harm excessive heat, as well as draft. The soil should be loose, nutritious and well drained. The best option is leafy soil or peat loam. To the soil was loose, it should be poured ordinary sand. If the soil is acidic, then this can be corrected by adding wood ash or dolomite flour.
Planting anemones in open ground
Planting anemone tubers in open soil is relatively simple, but it is necessary to determine the growth point. If the tubers are pretreated and allowed to swell, then the buds of the kidneys will become clearly distinguishable, thanks to which it is possible to understand how to plant them properly. If there are doubts about the location of the growth point, then it should be borne in mind that the top of the tuber is always flat, so the sharp end must be planted down. If the tuber has a non-standard shape, then it should be planted sideways.
The depth of the pit should be about 0.15 m, and its diameter should reach 0.3–0.4 m. One handful of wood ash and humus should be poured into the pit, then the tuber should be placed into it. It is covered with soil, which is slightly tamped. Planted tubers need abundant watering.
Diseases and pests
This plant is resistant to diseases. Snails or slugs can settle on the bushes. They must be harvested by hand, and the plants themselves are sprayed with metaldehyde. Sometimes leaf nematodes or caterpillars (winter worm) live on bushes. Bushes infected with a nematode need to be dug out and burned, the ground on the site must be replaced.
You can propagate such a flower by dividing the rhizome, seeds, tubers or dividing the bush. About how to grow an anemone from seed and propagate tubers, described in detail above. In order to divide the rhizomes in springtime, it is necessary to remove them from the soil and divide them into pieces, the length of which should be 50 mm. Each delink should have a kidney, they are planted in loose soil, placing it horizontally and only 50 mm deep. Fully matured like anemone will be only after 3 years. If the plant is 4 or 5 years old, it can be transplanted with the division of the bush.
When growing anemones in mid-latitudes in autumn, they need to be dug out and prepared for wintering. In dried tubers, it is necessary to remove the above-ground part, then they are buried in the sand or peat and stored for storage in a cool, dark room, for example, in a not damp basement. If it is assumed that there will be no frost in winter, flowers can be left in the soil. To do this, the surface of the site must be filled up with a thick layer of leaf leaves or covered with lapniki, which will save the plants from frost.
Anemone oakwood (Anemone nemorosa)
This species enjoys relatively low popularity among middle-latitude gardeners. Bush in height reaches from 0.2 to 0.3 m. Ordinary flowers have a diameter of 20–40 mm, as a rule, they are painted white, but there are varieties whose flowers have a lilac, blue and pink color. There are terry varieties. The main feature of this type is considered its unpretentiousness.
Anemone castella blooms from one and a half to 3-4 months. The duration of flowering directly depends on the time of disembarkation, the size of the tuber, temperature and air humidity. One bush usually gives from 5 to 20 flowers. If the anemone is grown in an unregulated climate, the largest number of flower stalks is formed in the spring from March to April.
Cut inflorescences carried out in the morning before watering the plants. In hot weather, flowers are cut when the closed buds are completely colored. In the cool period, the flowers are cut half-open, and in winter you have to wait until the anemones open completely. Damage to the inflorescences should be avoided during cutting, as they become a source of fungal infection. Non-commodity flowers are also removed.
Digging and storage of tubers
The duration of the growing season of coronlate anemones directly depends on the temperature and humidity of the soil. At temperatures above 25 degrees and the lack of moisture in the soil of the plants, flowering ends abruptly and their ground portion dries out.
When the leaves dry up by 50-70%, you can begin digging the tubers. They are dug together with the ground part, and then laid out in low boxes in one or two layers and placed for drying in well-ventilated rooms.
After about a week or ten days, the tubers are cleared of leaves and soil. Then they are sorted by size and placed in a cool and dry room for storage at a temperature of 12 to 15 degrees. Storage humidity should be maintained at 60%. In such conditions, the tubers can be stored for 3 to 4 years and at the same time do not lose their ability to germinate.
About diseases and pests
Among the diseases that often appear on the crown anemone, it is worth noting:
- gray rot
- viral infection and
Of the pests on this culture can attack:
In order for the crown anemone to appear as rarely as possible, various diseases and pests should be carried out the following preventive measures:
- Do not plant the plants too thickly.
- Regularly carry out weeding and loosening.
- Properly and regularly water the plants.
- When cutting or treating the area around the bushes, avoid various damage to the shoots and stalks.
- Maintain the best humidity regime and temperature in greenhouses.
- Remove all plant residues in time.
- Top dressing to carry out fertilizers in which potassium should be more than nitrogen.
- Spraying against various pests in a timely manner.

Growing autumn anemone
Planting autumn anemone
A magnificent and touching flowering of autumn anemones can be enjoyed only when planting was thought in advance and took care of timely spring planting. Autumn anemones, unlike early flowering plants, cannot be planted in the fall. For autumn anemone, it is advisable to carefully check the compliance of all the necessary growing conditions. Autumn anemones are grown in partial shade or scattered shadows, away from plants with shallow root systems (especially trees and shrubs). At the landing site, at least one month before the landing, they dig up and improve the soil with a mature compost, before planting they carry out additional aeration. The characteristics of the soil should be neutral in acidity and wet (it is impossible to plant anemones in dry soil). Anemones grow worse on sandy and poor soils, and also suffer in places with water stagnation. For planting choose well-drained places in which water does not collect during the rains and thaws.
Caring for autumn anemones is reduced to regular weeding, which must be done manually, without damaging the soft roots in the upper soil layer and maintaining the soil looseness and moisture by mulching and its constant renewal. For successful cultivation of anemones need a moist fertile soil. Therefore, in dry weather anemones are watered. In the fall, anemones are fed up, applying compost to the soil, and in the spring - mineral fertilizer. In June, fertilizing with complex soluble fertilizer is carried out. To preserve the decorativeness after flowering, the stems of autumnal anemone are cut off. In the spring of planting with anemones cleaned from old dry leaves.
Although autumn anemones hibernate well in central Russia, some of them may suffer in snowless winters. To do this, for the winter, Japanese and hybrid anemones should be covered with spruce branches, spunbond, or mixed with a thick layer of dry leaves. Before the shelter, it is better to mark the planting site with pegs so that the anemones that are in a long rest period are not damaged during the spring works (the shoots of these plants wake up much later than other garden crops).
ARTICLE ON THEMA Autumn Anemones: Japanese (Hubei) anemone, hybrid, felt, vine-growing
Reproduction of autumn anemone
Autumn anemones grow very well, so they are propagated by dividing the rhizomes in spring every three to four years. It is convenient to propagate the autumn anemones with root suckers, which are formed on the creeping rhizome. When young shoots of anemones appear near the mother plant, they are dug out and used for reproduction after rearing in the greenhouse. Young plants with a well-developed root system can be immediately planted to a permanent place along with a clod of earth.
Diseases and pests
Autumn anemones can be affected by caterpillars, slugs, snails, flecks, mice. From the disease dangerous powdery mildew, rust, leaf nematode, other viral infections.
Autumn Anemones in the garden
Autumnal anemone, namely Japanese (Hubei), felt, anemone hybrid and vine-growing anemones, have all the same advantages that we so appreciate in the spring and summer blooming varieties of these amazing garden plants. Their flowering begins in the second half of the summer and continues until frost. Simple, but so touching, they color garden compositions and ensembles with soft pastel strokes, towering on slender and strong stems. Rushing up, the anemones seem to be constantly whispering and dancing in the gusts of the autumn wind, striking in their endurance and invulnerability, accentuated by fragile beauty. Amazing anemone is most noticeable in the autumn garden, where other late-flowering plants and a bright palette of purple and gold of trees and shrubs preparing for the rest period emphasize its bright contrasting background. The flowering of autumn anemones colors the garden during the sunset of its magnificence - from the second half of July to October. But the decorative party of anemone in the garden continues right up to the winter itself: after flowering on the plants, spectacular and very decorative seedlings are formed, which sparkle on the bare thin shoots, then bursting and opening wadded seeds, resembling cotton baskets. Seed heads of anemone look very impressive, even under the snow.
Anemones with late flowering in the garden can be used in a variety of roles, but only in group batches - they are beautiful in monocompositions, when combined with flowering or decorative leafy plants on flower beds and rabatka provided that the anemones are planted in fairly large groups that create the effect glades. Autumn anemones are most spectacular in landscape plantings, as a soloist on a meadow or as a background plant for large garden flowering shrubs: the touching flood of delicate flowers conquers with its simplicity and elegance with the effect of domination and isolation on a contrasting background. Anemones look great against the background of hedges, on the edge of shrub and tree groups, in the company of tall perennials in the background, as an undergrowth for soloing roses and rhododendrons. The beauty of late anemones in autumn compositions is emphasized by massive and lush seasonal plants with contrasting forms and image: “spring” sissies literally shine against the background of asters, chrysanthemums, dahlias, cereals, in addition to which their dancing lightness is most noticeable. In compositions with more than five species of complementary plants, it is better to use semi-double and terry species of late anemones.

Partners for the autumn anemone pick up very easily.
Anemone - the daughter of the winds
From large shrubs the best addition will be all types of rhododendrons, especially undersized species, but roses are also perfect, as are hydrangeas, which look visually lighter and more harmonious against the background of the anemone. Of the bushes, the clematis, the snowberry, barberries, cotoneaster, deren, and photogillla are also well combined with late anemones. Of perennials besides those already mentioned chrysanthemums successfully completed anemones ferns (eg, mnogoryadnik Seta-bearing and strausnik), aconite, rue dvuhkryloplodny, hosts, black cohosh, lobelia blue, periwinkle, Lythrum salicaria, Astilbe, saxifrage, Ligularia, ornamental grasses, speedwell, black cohosh sharp and racemose, kamnelom kortuzolistnaya. If the composition with anemones is compiled with an emphasis on autumn, the best addition will be Chinese astilba, Arends aconite, black brushwood, Bonar verbena, autumn varieties of asters, Japanese maple, Japanese Morrow sedge, large-flowered geicher. Anemones welcome the neighborhood with bulbous: between the plants can be planted onions daffodils, proleski, irises.

Anemone or anemone - herbaceous perennial from the family of buttercups. There are about 150 species of anemones, different in height, flower color and root structure. This rather large group of plants is distributed in many regions of our planet, both in the mountains and in the lowland areas.
These are mainly low-growing plants, and their height rarely exceeds 0.5 m. Their flowering periods also vary depending on the species: some bloom in spring, the second - in summer, and some prefer autumn. Anemone flowers can be white, blue, lilac, pink or red. Flowers of some species in form resemble chamomile, and others - poppies. For most species of anemone, a short growing season is typical, its aboveground part begins to turn yellow and fade after flowering, approximately from mid-summer.
Choosing a place for planting a flower, you need to imagine the environment of its natural habitat. Since anemones grow predominantly in forests or on mountain slopes, plants can tolerate some shading. Но чтобы выбрать место посадки наиболее верно, нужно знать, что эти растении условно делятся на тенелюбивые, теневыносливые и светолюбивые. Предпочитают тень ветреницы гибкая, амурская, алтайская, гладкая и дубравная. При легком затенении лучше растут лесная, канадская и вильчатая ветреницы.For sunny flower beds, the beloved cone anemone, tender, Caucasian and Apennine, will be perfect for everyone.
Considering that the spring anemones bloom when the foliage in the trees and shrubs has not yet blossomed, these plants can be planted near tall neighbors.
Anemones - quite moisture-loving plants that require regular maintenance and watering, not only during flowering, but also during the rest period. To preserve moisture in hot weather, it is desirable to mulch the soil with peat or dry leaves.
Preparing the ground for anemone, it is important to know what kind it refers to. Light, loose soil is suitable for species growing in a wooded area, and for the inhabitants of the mountain slopes, the soil with the addition of ash or dolomite flour is better suited. For all types, it is desirable to add sand to the ground to ensure drainage.
Anemones multiply by dividing the bushes, parts of tubers or rhizomes, as well as seeds. To divide the bushes and tubers of these plants preferably in early spring. After planting the processes in the ground, the main care for them consists in regular watering. Most anemone pretty quickly take root and begin active growth.
Having decided to propagate anemones with seeds, it should be remembered that they quickly lose their germination, and some species are hard to grow in this way. Anemone seeds are sown either in late autumn in open ground, or in spring, having previously kept them in the cold. Usually shoots appear after 2 - 3 weeks. Seedlings develop quite quickly and after a year or two young plants will be pleased with the appearance of flowers.
Transplanting adult anemones with rhizome should not be done too often - they grow better in a permanent place.
Anemone: planting and care in the open field
As for the tuber species, the situation is exactly the opposite. When there is a dormant period, the tubers should be dug out, carefully inspected for damage and, put in boxes, put in a dry, cool and well-ventilated room. In the fall, the tubers are planted in the ground again.
Some gardeners are of the opinion that it is not necessary to fertilize anemones. But still feeding during the flowering period of the complex mineral fertilizer will only benefit the plant, extending the flowering time.
If the anemone is provided with appropriate care, then in a few years a single plant has all chances to turn into a charming rug. However, it should be remembered that not only cultural but also wild varieties of anemone are grown in garden plots, which are extremely unpretentious and can fill in a relatively short time places that are not intended for them at all. To avoid such surprises, it is necessary to control their growth and remove excess plant parts in time, along with the roots.
In general, anemones are quite resistant to diseases and attacks of pests, but sometimes these troubles do happen. The leaves of the anemone can be damaged by snails and slugs, and the tubers - rot, which often affects the overmoistened plants or those that grow in the soil, poorly permeable to water. For pest control, manual collection and treatment of leaves with metaldehyde solution is effective. And when the rot appears on the tubers, cut the affected fragments and carefully dry the remaining healthy part.
Despite the apparent simplicity of these plants, they are incredibly gentle and beautiful. Anemones are good in flowerbeds and Japanese gardens, and on the alpine hill they are simply irreplaceable. Their early flowering will add bright colors to the garden area and remind you of the onset of spring.

Anemone flower - planting and care, photo
Especially careful is to be the one who grows them stained on the lawn - while mowing the green carpet you need not to touch the areas with anemones, returning to the usual mode of cutting just after they leave no trace.
Feeding anemone need to pay close attention. In order for plants to grow quickly, create dense plantings and bloom, it is necessary to maintain constant soil fertility.
If the coronous anemone is grown for cutting, then at the time of bud formation, complex mineral fertilizers must be made.
For the rest of the anemone (with the exception of the forest) to improve the insufficient quality and fertile soil, “reserves” which is not enough for many years, start from the second or third year, at the moment of the beginning of active growth of the plant by applying to the soil or scattering around organic or complex mineral fertilizers.
Diseases and pests
Of the pests anemones most annoying slugs and leaf nematodes.
Nematodes appear in yellowish and gradually darkening spots on the leaves, and in a state of neglect lead to the death of the plant. It is possible to fight with leaf nematodes only by cardinal methods - removal of damaged parts, with strong distribution - the whole plant with the replacement of the soil at the place of cultivation.
Slugs love to feast on the leaves of the crown, tender, grove, and most other types of anemone. You can fight with these garden dwellers by hand picking in the evenings, with special lures and beer traps. Anemones are most vulnerable to attack by slugs at high humidity and during rainy periods, during which inspection of landings should be increased.
Since anemones, even in a garden, are largely wild in plants and very sensitive to growing conditions, you should try to recreate conditions for them as close as possible to natural habitats. In particular, an important component of care is the constant maintenance of the layer of mulch, which plays the role of an analogue of forest litter.
Anemones prefer mulching with long-acting fertilizers - humus, loose peat, compost, and fallen leaves of broad-leaved species (oak, apple, linden, etc.).
The mulch is renewed in early spring, before the onset of active growth, and is repeated in the fall, covering the anemone with semi-mature manure or herbal compost.
The place of growing anemones, which completely die off in the summer, for convenience, is better to mark with pegs, so as not to hurt and not damage the sleeping rhizomes and nodules during gardening, including during aeration of the lawn.
In addition, working with plants, in particular when digging, cutting flowers, separating better in protective gloves, for many anemones are characterized by the content of irritating and causing allergic reactions substances (for example, anemones of crown and oakwood).

Recently, anemone has been widely used in landscaping the site. These herbaceous perennial plants look very impressive when their petals sway in the wind, for which the people called them "anemone". In general, the flower is unpretentious, but he needs minimal care. Under natural conditions, anemone is found in mountains and temperate zones. How to plant an anemone in the fall will look in detail in this article.
What you need to know when growing anemones
If you plan to plant anemones, then it will be useful to know some secrets of caring for a flower.
• Perennial demanding watering in hot weather.
• Feeding anemones in the fall is carried out with mineral complexes, but it is advisable to use organic matter during planting and during the development of the plant.
• In conditions of central Russia, it is necessary to shelter anemones for the winter.
As you can see, perennial care is simple. The main rule of the gardener is to observe the level of moisture around the flower.
How to adjust watering
When growing anemones it is not allowed to overmoisten the soil, this leads to the development of rot of the root system. If the plant is too dry, then flowering will be scarce, new buds will not be formed. How to properly organize watering anemones?
In order for the humidity level to be suitable, the flower is planted on raised beds, and a drainage layer is arranged in the landing hole. The soil surface is mulched with a thick layer of peat or fallen leaves. With this approach, the required level of humidity will persist for a long time.
Water the flower according to weather conditions. If the weather is cool, then watering is carried out once a week. In the hot summer, the frequency of watering increases. If necessary, anemone watering once a day.
Autumn - time for planting anemones
It should be borne in mind that in regions with very severe winters, it is better for an anemone to dig up and store the tuber until spring. If the climate allows, then the flower perezimuet well in the ground. For early spring flowering, anemones are planted in the fall, before the onset of frost.
Choosing a landing site
Experienced gardeners advise growing anemones in partial shade. Indeed, in too shaded areas, the plant ceases to bloom, and in open sunny areas its leaves suffer from burns. The best option would be a flower bed, which is lit only in the morning hours. The intensity of light affects the onset of flowering.
Preparing the soil for planting anemone in the fall
Anemone is a very delicate flower, it is grown on fertile, loose soils. Deciduous land with peat is most suitable. If the soil on the site is too dense, then add sand and wood ash.
The bed for planting is prepared in advance, digging it with organic matter. You can add humus or compost. Do not forget that the rhizomes of plants grow strongly during the season, so when planting leave enough space for their development.
Reproduction of anemones in the fall: how to plant
Plant anemone can be seeds or tubers. Each method has its own subtleties that need to be considered.
Reproduction of anemone seeds
Experienced gardeners are advised to use only freshly harvested seeds for autumn planting, as they have a short shelf life.
Important!Before the spring planting of seeds, it is necessary to stratify them; in autumn, the need for such a procedure disappears.
When sowing seeds, be aware that they cannot be buried in the soil.
Planting anemone tubers in open ground and caring for plants
They must be on its surface. Shoots of anemones are very fragile, they will not be able to break through a thick layer of soil mixture. Shoots of anemones will appear in early spring when the snow melts. However, with this method of reproduction there is a significant minus - fragile seedlings are afraid of overwetting. How to be in this situation? Seasoned gardeners, who managed to successfully grow an anemone from seed, act a little differently. Look at the photo
• In the fall, prepare wide containers for planting anemones, filling them with a light nutrient substrate, not forgetting to arrange drainage and openings for the drain of excess fluid.
• Sowing of seeds is carried out in a moist soil before the very frosts.
• A seed box is dropped in the garden until spring, and with warming it is taken out, even before germination. Stratification has already taken place, but meltwaters can no longer harm fragile shoots.
• Further care for anemones continues in containers, after which the strengthened seedlings are sent to the flower bed.
Flowering of anemones derived from seeds will begin only in the third year of cultivation.
Division and planting of tubers anemones
In nature, there are many varieties of anemones, the care and cultivation of which is different. There are varieties with root crops and rhizomatous plants. Dividing and planting varieties that have a rhizome, is carried out in the spring. Since the fall of the plant reacts poorly to transplant. But the tuberous anemones spring grow harder. There can not do without the autumn planting.
The thing is that for the germination of tubers need to be trained. To do this, during spring planting, they are pre-soaked in water until they swell. This is a fairly time consuming process. But the autumn planting of anemone tubers greatly facilitates the work. Preliminary preparation is not required to a plant. In spring, the meltwater will help the tubers soften enough, shoots will appear without much effort. The depth of seeding root crops is 5-7 cm.
Important!When the tubers are planted in the autumn, the landing pits must have good drainage, otherwise excessive moisture will cause diseases.
Anemone care after planting: preparing for winter
In the southern regions, anemones can be grown without additional shelter. With the onset of cold weather, it is enough to cover the bed with peat or compost. Before that, all the leaves and stems need to be cut. In such conditions, anemones hibernate well and spring shoots appear without loss.
In a harsh climate, mulching will not save plants. It is advisable to store anemone tubers in the room. To do this, they are dug, dried and sent to storage. The temperature in the room is maintained at +15 degrees. Further, it is gradually reduced to +5 degrees.
Important!Digging anemone carried out after the natural drying of the shoots and leaves.
• Why do anemone leaves turn yellow?
Spontaneous wilting and yellowing of the leaves of the plant indicates a lack of nutrients in the soil. It is enough to feed the flower with complex phosphorus-potassium.
Yellowing of leaves occurs due to insufficient or excessive watering.
If the yellowing of the leaves occurs in the second half of the summer, then this is a natural process.
• Snails harm anemones
Anemones are quite resistant to various diseases, only excessive soil moisture can cause rot. Most often, plants are harmed by snails and slugs, which spoil the leaves and appearance of the plant. To save the flower from "uninvited guests" will help frequent spraying with metaldehyde.
Proper care and care will help grow bright and healthy anemones, which from spring to late autumn will decorate the garden with their petals.
