Perennial of the Month- Fall Blooming Anemone
Most of us think of Pansies, Asters and Mums when we're looking for fall color in the garden. But no other plant puts on quite the same show as the perennial Fall Blooming Anemone. The 36" to 48" tall showy stems with many shades of pink or pure white blossoms stand out in the fall garden. Morning sun or filtered light is best and when happy, Anemones can colonize an area. The deer don't seem to bother these beauties either. The pink cultivar "Richard Ahrens" begins blooming in August, followed by "September Charm' and later forms that bloom well into October. Pick a part sun or shady spot and plant some now.
