It's another stunning color in the fantastic Mona Lisa® series of Anemones from seed! Lavender Shades grows readily, blooms even in the short days of late winter and early spring, and makes a long-lived cut-flower!

We're in love with the Mona Lisas,® the best thing to happen to the Windflower family in many a year. The result of half a century of breeding, these blooms are upturned, single to semi-double, and absolutely huge -- 4 to 4½ inches across! Who would have thought that an economical Anemone from seed (instead of those pricey bulbs) could perform so well and be so garden-tough?

These enormous blooms bob atop long, wiry (yet strong!) stems. Cut them the day after they first open, adding a pinch of sugar to the water that you harvest them in to extend their vase life. You can expect them to look good in indoor arrangements for 10 to 14 days. Seriously!

Mona Lisa® was bred for flower power, too. A mature plant will deliver up to 18 blooms! They never need staking, and the stems will be longer in the lower light of late winter, early spring, and late fall than at other times. You just can't lose with this powerhouse!

Lavender Shades reaches 10 to 18 inches in bloom, and spreads just 6 inches wide. This perennial thrives in part shade and rich soil that is kept watered and mulched. It flowers in spring and fall, keeping the earliest spring bulbs company and also greeting the cool-season autumn annuals and vegetables. Pamper it to encourage even heavier bloom, and it will reward you many times over! Zones 6-9. Packet is 10 seeds.
