anemones in the South?

New Orleans, LA(Zone 9b)

Has anyone had experience with growing these in warmer climes? I just bought myself this bouquet for my desk yesterday, and I can't help wanting to grow some now. However, I've never seen this growing around here, or offered for sale at the nursery, so I think I might just be out of luck when it comes to these, except for with my lovely bouquet.

Any suggestions or ideas?

Hi Nola_Nigella,

I grow them here in South Africa. Plant the corms in Autumn, and by late Winter you should have lovely flowers.

Good luck,

Hi!! I purchased some anemones form Lazy S's about 5-6 years ago - I planted them under an ancient oak tree, so they get part sun, part bright shade, & have thrived. I do have irrigation, so they get plenty of water. I am in zone 8b. They usually bloom twice each year - spring & fall, & I look forward to it. I am thinking of getting another variety! Good luck!
