Prefers dappled shade in most climates; will tolerate full sun in northern regions. Grows best in soil that has been loosened before planting. It’s hard to tell top from bottom on anemone tubers, but it doesn’t matter which end is up: The tubers know to send shoots up and roots down. To speed planting, you can put several tubers in a single planting hole.
Spring-flowering bulbs must be planted in the fall. They need cool soil to make roots before the onset of winter. Cool fall weather arrives at different times from north to south and from high elevations to low.
Please note that the temperature of the soil lags behind the air temperature. You can generally plant later than the windows provided in this map. As long as the ground is not frozen, you can still plant.
