Anemones (Wind Flowers)
Anemones, (also known as Wind Flowers), are a genus of the buttercup family Raununculaceae and are closely related Pasque flowers and Hepaticas.
The word ‘anemone’ is derived from the Greek word ‘anemos’, meaning ‘wind’ – hence the name Wind Flowers.
Anemones are available in a beautiful range of bright and pastel colours. In the wholesale flower markets cut anemones are sold in wraps of 50 stems. If conditioned correctly, anemones should have a vase life of up to 7 / 9 days. Slowly, anemones are being used more often in wedding flowers these days - and why not?... because they look great!

To get the best from your wholesale cut anemones please read the care instructions below carefully:
- Cut the stems at a 45 degree angle with a sharp knife.
- Fill sterilised buckets with cold luke warm and add flower food.
- Place the anemones in the buckets - up to their necks in water.

Never leave cut flowers in direct sun light, near a radiator, in a draft or near fruit. (The gas used to ripen fruit will harm most flowers). Keep the anemones in a cool place and always keep out of the way of children.
