Floral Friday ~ Anemones
The oh-so-requested anemones! A member of the Ranunculaceae family, the name anemone means “the wind’s daughter” in Greek. To read more about the meaning and symbolism of anemones, click here.
One of the most popular anemones is the Marianne Panda variety. A dark center with creamy white petals look just like a panda bear. The Marianne series also includes anemones in blue, cerise and red. Another collection is the Mistral series. This includes the pastel and bi-color varieties. Both series are available now to spring.
Care and Handling
Anemones are very ethylene sensitive so they need to be kept away from fruits and other ethylene producing products. The stems should be cleaned of any debris or leaves and placed in a hydrating solution. They also benefit by using Floralife® Quick Dip 100. Always use a flower food treatment for maximum enjoyment.
