Positive Grasmussen On Jul 25, 2007, Grasmussen from Anchorage, AK (Zone 4a) wrote:

In the wild, Narcissus-flowered Anemone, Anemone narcissiflora, usually have few flower stalks per plant. In cultivation, given good growing conditions, plants will form large, multi-stemmed clumps. They are a very desirable garden flower. However, the seeds are very difficult to germinate. One recommendation is to use a running water bath, followed by cold stratification.
Last fall I planted freshly harvested seed in a growing tub, placed it in a position to receive heavy rain runoff. Then left it outdoors for the winter. I have a tub full of seedlings now, for the first time.
