Anemone leaves curling

I planted some anemone tubers last fall and they have bloomed beautifully, but now I'm noticing that the leaves are starting to curl under. It started with the first one that bloomed and now the others are beginning to now since blooming.

I read somewhere that these have had problems with leave curling (no pics) in other countries because of disease, but info was vague at best.

I hope that is not the case, but I did buy them cheap at the Christmas Tree Shoppe last year for $2. If this is the case, I might as well tell my friend not to plant hers, since we bought them together.

They are in FULL sun, so could that be a factor?

These are the type I have:

My anemones which are in full sun, are very short-lived. As soon as they've finished blooming the leaves start to dieback and completely disappear by summer. Could the leaf curl simply be an indication that they're done for the season?

That's what I was wondering. I would feel a bit better if that was the case, but also disappointed by only getting a few flowers.

Thank you allandale!
