If you haven't heard of anemones yet, chances are they will be on you radar soon! Jewel tones are a huge floral trend for 2018 and these beauties are the perfect accent flower to tie in that deep navy color. Like all sought after flowers, these babies are quite temperamental and a bit unpredictable, but if properly cared for, can be a great option for October through May weddings.
Anemones come in multiple colors, but white ones with dark centers are by far the most popular.
Anemones come from the Greek word “anemos,” meaning wind.
The flower buds can show strong pink hues, but the pink will often fade as the flower blooms.
Anemones tend to vary in color from stem to stem. This is a naturally occurring phenomenon. White anemones may show touches of pink, green, or lavender throughout the flower itself.
Anemones are a phototropic flower. They will bend towards the light and sometimes close when in darkness.
The average anemone vase life is 5 days with proper care and handling. They are a very sensitive flower, so extra care is always recommended to ensure they look their best.
