Anemone flowers are a cute favourite among many and increasingly popular with today’s brides.
Anemone flowers are here!
The locally grown supply is limited we have only just started to receive them this week in Brisbane, but they continue to delight us with how they open.
Apparently the name means “daughter of the wind” and the flower is often referred to as the “windflower”. There are about 20 species in the genus and the perennial is sometimes used as a traditional medicine for cramps and emotional distress. However, you would want to make sure you have the right species before trying that because one type of anemone, the Rue Anemone is poisonous.

Caring For Your Anemones
When your flowers arrive, you will need to trim the stems post haste and try to cut the stems at an angle underwater. Clean your flower buckets to get rid of any chemical residue or fungal matter in the bucket as this can affect the delicate Anemone flowers (you will be happy to know that we here at Tesselaars take extreme care of the flowers before they get to you, including treatment of the bucket and water). Some floral preservative or table sugar can be used in the water to help the flowers thrive and a few drops of lemon juice makes a great addition also to protect against bacteria in the water.
Heat is never kind on flowers so if possible store them in a cool room. The longer they stay in there the longer they will last. And be sure to educate your brides on keeping their bouquets cool and hydrated on the their big day!
