Anemone blanda

I grew it no problem when living in Wellington, which possibly would be 
about zone 8.  Wet winters with mild frost,  shortish summers.

Now I am in Auckland I tried it in the garden several times and lost 
them.   Except for one which got itself under the concrete path and came 
up for several years, flowering happily, until I tried to dig it up...

Now have some in a flower pot, which I bring out in spring when they 
start showing above the soil and are very happily flowering every 
spring.  But once they have died back I put them on some covered shelves 
out the back where they get no sun and no rain.

I start watering the pot early spring, being very sparing with the 
watering.  But once they are growing, I have them out in the open in the 

It would be interesting to know if anyone else can grow them.

Ina Crossley     where we are having so far a very mild autumn, and not 
much better for the start of the winter.
