Suggested Care: Anemone × hybrida ‘Whirlwind’ should be planted in moist but well-drained, humusy soils, positioned in full sun but can withstand partial shade. It must be protected by excessive winter wet. Wind protection should be provided. Additionally, a winter mulch is also advised in areas with cold winters.
