Anemonopsis macrophylla

Germination Tips


Sow immediately. The viability of these seeds is short or the species propagates best with fresh seed. Stored seed might be coaxed into germination with temperature cycling and patience.


This species needs special care as described.


Sow @ 20°C. Seed germinates within 3 months.
Special Care: 
hydrophilic, sow as soon as seed is ripe; ; will not germinate if seed has dried; if stored, must be put in plastic bag with barely damp vermiculite; keep them warm during summer, coolish towards the fall and then 4⁰C at the onset of winter. Do not store them in the freezer because the formation of ice crystals will damage cell membranes
Most of the seeds in our Germination Guide have been offered from time to time in our annual Seed Exchange (Seedex).
