Cryptic Crossword Clues - Anagrams

A cryptic crossword anagram clue has three parts:
- a definition of the answer;
- the letters required for the anagram (disguised as a different word or phrase);
- a word or phrase that tells you that the letters are out of order (e.g. "strange", "disorderly" etc)
These three parts can be in any order, but they must make grammatical sense.
You also have the number of letters in the answer to help you.
Good luck!
All answers must be spelled correctly, no type-ins.

undefinedHere's an example clue with the three parts highlighted:

Eros recycled a romantic flower (4)

- a definition of the answer ("a romantic flower")

- the letters required for the anagram, disguised as a different word or phrase ("Eros")

- a word or phrase that tells you that the letters are out of order ("recycled")

All clues are my own, except the classic "Angered angered angered".
