|Anemone blanda 'Blue Shades'|
Windflowers can be purchased from many of the major bulb companies and planted in the fall when other fall-planted bulbs are planted. I have found that like their large cousins, Anemone coronaria, I am most successful with windflowers when I soak their dime-sized tubers overnight before planting. They are easy to poke in wherever you want them. Just push your finger into the soil about 2 inches deep and pop it in. Plant them in an area where they can naturalize and form a mat and you will be greeted with the cheerful blooms throughout the spring. Hardy in zones 4-8.
