Recently Bavarian gardener Cathy of Words and Herbs suggested posting a week of flowers, one or more photos a day of our flowers and gardens to brighten and cheer us all.
This afternoon I noticed a promising patch of anemone greenery in the northern bed and so for this first day I’m sharing an anemone from February 27, 2020.
Lovely – remember always being struck by this anemone in your vases!
Thanks Cathy. They do make a good show. I must try to find some more.
Beautiful! Your anemones are one of my favourite plants from your garden Susie. I tried growing them once and they only survived a couple of years. Maybe I should try again. 😃
Thanks Cathy! Mine are short-lived also, but I keep trying. They don’t seem to like it here much but when one blooms it seems worth the effort.
Exquisite! I love the perfection of anemones, so beautiful!
Thanks Eliza! I adore them too, wish they were easier to grow.
You’ve started off with one of my favorites! I always love seeing them in your garden.
Thanks Frank. I have not had much luck with these lately. Planted 100 last fall and only a handful survived. I’m crediting my rabbit infestation but don’t really know.
My favourite too!
Oh, good, so glad you like the anemone!
I love the dark blue anemones and recently planted 20 of the ‘Lord Lieutenant’ variety (as well as almost 50 others). I’m hoping I’ll see them sooner rather than later as my cutting garden is rather short on flowers, even if I don’t face the fall/winter weather challenges many gardeners do.
I hope you will have good luck with your anemones Kris. I haven’t planted anything this fall.
Hey, I was just trying to remember the name of these. Someone posted a picture of a Japanese anemone that looked like the white version of this one.
