Information

Anemone Coronaria is the most widely grown species of the Anemone genus. It originates in the eastern part of the Mediterranean area and Asia Minor and it is commonly known as Wind Flower or Poppy Anemone.

Pages could be devoted to stories about their native haunts and their historical association. F1 hybrid Anemones can be grown from seed and have marked improvements in plant quality. 
Perhaps the most outstanding of these F1 hybrids is the Mona Lisa Series, which is the result of 50 years of extensive breeding work.
The Mona Lisa Anemone flowers yield vibrant 4.0 - 4.5 in. (10-11 cm) blooms on sturdy 18 in. (45 cm) stems, and curled parsley-like foliage. It includes a great range of colors such as wine, pink, white, blue, orchid, red and bicolors among others. Long, 10 to 14 day vase life.

  • Crop Time

    Start production at 8 weeks after planting.

  • Planting Density

    7 plants/sq-m(1 plant/sq-ft.net).

  • Pre-planting

    Soil: Well drained, loose soil with no clusters. At. least 25 cm (10 in.) deep.
    PH: 6.0 to 7.0.

  • Temperature

    The average temperature set points after transplant must be 15 to 18°C (60 to 65°F) during the day and. 13°C (55°F) at nights.

  • Irrigation

    Adequate growth of Anemones requires frequent waterings. Do not allow the soil to be dry when plants are small, water daily. Once plants have established irrigation can be done 2 to 3 times per week.

  • Fertilization

    Anemones require relatively high nutrient levels.
    During the first week (before flower initiation) keep N:K relation in 2:1.
    As flower initiation begins decrease nitrate nitrogen fertilizers and increase the use of potassium fertilizers to produce stronger stems.
    EC: 1.5 to 2.0.

  • Harvest

    Harvest Anemones one day after the flower has opened. Harvest in the morning when all plant tissue is cool. Remove field heat by transferring harvested bunches to coolers to optimize post-harvest life.

  • PostHarvest treatment

    Always use clean buckets with fresh cool water. Do not ship flowers that have not had field heat removed. Hydrate with 3% sucrose solution for 24 hours after harvest increases vase life.

  • Pests & Diseases

    Aphids
    Thrips
    Whitefly
    Botrytis
