Grape - Mistral Anemone
Another of my favourite Italian anemone! It's almost iridescent shades of deep warm purple through to burgundy and red, is definitely a win for colour perfection, but then it's unique cup shaped petals are the ultimate icing that truly sets it apart from all other anemones! It was one of the top 3 varieties I found myself constantly gravitating to to harvest for my bouquets!
I've found the Mistral series to be slightly less productive than other series - but in the best possible way! I often found other series to be tiresome to keep on top of their constant never ending harvesting and constant deadheading, but the Mistrals were that perfect balance of productive without crossing the line of being unmanageable (unless you were shifting and setting up farms and everything in spring was unmanageable like me last spring :)
