Can you please tell me what this plant is. I bought it from a garden centre 3 years ago, planted it out but so far no flowers! Not even buds.From my memory the flowers were yellow. So what is it and what am I doing wrong? Thanks

It can be hard to tell, but it looks like a yellow anemone flower. Usually the cause for no blooms on these plants is over-fertilization, particularly, nitrogen.

If this is any soil that has a slow release nitrogen than this is the cause. You can supplement with phosphorus and potassium to help correct this, but they do best in poor soil.

This article will give you a little more information on their care: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/anemone/anemone-windflower.htm
