The Anemone coronaria 'Mistral®' hybrids "Italian Anemone" is a rare new anemone variety straight from Italy! 'Mistral Plus Grape' is a clump-forming, herbaceous perennial with palmate, finely divided, dark green leaves and, in late spring and early summer, pink-flushed, purple-blue, semi-double flowers with black centers. Naturalizing easily, these charming plants will make a stunning effect planted "en masse" in the garden border or container and can last up to 2 weeks in a vase. Cutting them encourages longer stems and more blooms!

For the best cut flowers it is advisable to cut the flower when it is well-formed and the petal length exceeds the length of the corolla. Early morning cutting also creates a better quality flower and stem length. If you cut flowers regularly, tubers will put their energy into producing a new stem.
