Anemone blanda is a tuberous species native to Greece and Turkey. Many cultivars are suitable for garden use. The first photo is of the species in its habitat on Tahtali Dag, SW Turkey taken by Oron Peri. Photos 2-4 by John Lonsdale show the flowers.
Photos by David Pilling show the tubers on a 10 mm grid, developing seeds and ripe seeds. The seeds in photos 2 and 3, taken at the end of June 2013, were kept moist and at outside temperature and germinated in February 2014 as shown in photo 4 (10 mm grid); photo 5 shows the resulting seedlings a couple of months later.
