Frequently Asked Questions

Anemone Mount Everest bulbs, also known as Anemone coronaria, are popular for their vibrant, colorful flowers that add beauty to any garden. To plant these bulbs, choose well-draining soil in a sunny location, as they thrive in full sun to partial shade. Loosen the soil to a depth of 2-3 inches and add organic matter, such as compost or well-rotted manure, to improve soil structure and fertility.

Soak the bulbs in water for 2 hours before planting to encourage root development. Plant the bulbs about 1 inch deep and 3-4 inches apart with their pointed ends facing upward. Water the planting area thoroughly, and apply a layer of mulch to help retain moisture and suppress weeds. Anemone Hollandia bulbs typically bloom in the spring, providing a stunning floral display.

The optimal time to plant Anemone Mount Everest bulbs is during the fall or early spring. Fall planting is ideal in milder climates, as it allows the bulbs to establish their root systems and prepares them for a vibrant display of blooms in the following spring.

In colder climates, it's better to plant the bulbs in late spring once the ground has thawed and the threat of frost has passed. Anemones are hardy in hardiness zones 5-9, but not in colder climates.

So actually it is a personal preference, because you can plant Anemones a few times in the year and they will bloom within a few months after planting.

Anemone Mount Everest, also known as windflowers, are considered perennial plants, meaning they have the potential to come back every year. However, their level of hardiness varies depending on the climate.

In milder climates, such as USDA hardiness zones 5 and up, Anemone Mount Everest can reliably return each year without needing to be lifted and stored during the winter months.

In colder climates, where the ground freezes, these bulbs may not survive the winter, and it is recommended to lift and store them in a cool, dry place to replant in the following spring. Providing proper care, such as adequate watering and fertilization, will also encourage healthy growth and return.

Anemone Mount Everest bulbs are considered moderately deer resistant. While no plant is entirely immune to deer browsing, Anemone species tend to be less attractive to deer compared to other plants.

This is due to their slightly bitter taste and the presence of mild toxins, which deter deer from consuming them. However, if deer pressure is high in your area, consider additional protective measures like fencing or repellents to safeguard your bulbs.

Storing Anemone Mount Everest bulbs for the winter involves a few simple steps:

• After the foliage dies back, carefully lift the bulbs from the ground using a garden fork or spade.
• Gently remove excess soil and trim the foliage to about 1 inch above the bulb.
• Allow the bulbs to air-dry in a cool, dark, and well-ventilated location for about a week.
• Place the bulbs in a container filled with peat moss, vermiculite, or perlite to prevent them from touching each other.
• Store the container in a cool, dry, and dark location, with temperatures ranging from 35-45°F (2-7°C).
• Check the bulbs periodically for signs of mold or rot and remove any affected bulbs promptly.

The above steps are only applicable to areas with cold winters, such as USDA hardiness zone 4 and below. Anemones are hardy in USDA zones 5 and up, so within these zones you can leave them outside year-round.
