This heirloom is still tops for its vigorous growth and solid good looks. The crisp formality of white blooms with golden centers is matched by dark green foliage that remains attractive all season. Makes a fine addition to the front of a shrub border, where its blooms will add sparkle. Blooms in late summer to fall. Anemones thrive in full sun or partial shade and deep, rich, moist soil. Once established (which may take a year or two), they will fill in any available space, though these plants are far too charming to be called invasive. Since they are a bit later to emerge in the spring, they make an ideal cover for the dying foliage of spring bulbs. 3-4’ tall.
A native southern plant with bright green clumping foliage that turns a rich yellow in fall. Clusters of star-shaped periwinkle flowers appear in early summer. Grow in full sun in moist, average or dry soil. Slow to grow at first, but takes off in the second year. Fall color is brightest in full sun. Use in borders, rock gardens, native gardens, cottage gardens or open woodland area. A good companion with asters or sedums. Best when massed. 12”-36” tall.
