Planted fall 2013. As with my other Anemone's, the plants show up in December and seem to have no issues with winter nights that drop below freezing. I do have to water them about once a week though because what does seem to bother them is the dryness if they don't receive water. The Bride is now blooming in February. After growing blue and magenta anemone's, I was not sure whether I would like the white as much but they are beautiful. I would suggest mixing them in with other colored anemone's. I have blue ones blooming right now and the contrast is very pretty. Update: This flower started producing buds in Oct and has bloomed all Winter for me, even with night tempatures reaching down into the 20's at times.
