I've had a few of you ask about keeping cut Japanese Anemone alive. I'm not sure if there's a trick to it besides fresh water every day, but what I have found with my garden anemones is that if I harvest them during their first flowering flush, they hardly last more than a day. However, if I hold off until the second or third flush, they'll last cut at least 3-5 days in a vase. So my advice: hold those twitchy clippers and enjoy them in nature for as long possible (the honeybees LOVE them!). Here in Utah, October is the best time to cut as they've been flowering for at least 1-2 months by that time and the temps have cooled. Hope this helps! Does anyone out there have tricks for Japanese Anemone? I'd love to hear!
