Northern Shade

Your Japanese anemones are very pretty, nice clear petals, and lovely golden stamens. The double pink ones would look super mixed in with these, and with luck they will just be slow for you, not dehydrated. I have debated about adding these to my garden, but I'm just not sure if they would get enough bloom time before the frosts. I really like the flowers, though, so I should try one to check it out.


Those Japanese Anemones are gorgeous! And I envy the squash harvest you've had this year Kathleen. Mine were a big flop! ;)


Awesome awesome awesome on having so many squash and so late too! They must be extra delish! My J. anemones all died and withered away. I'm actually afraid I've lost them all. That is one plant I can't water as, like you said, it is so thirsty. They are stunners in a good year though. Glad your year was great!


Beautiful white flowers and they all seem to be very delicate looking. I'm trying anemones again this year. This spring I wondered why they weren't coming up in the tub I put them in and dug in to find they had rotted. Hmmm. But they are so pretty I'm not giving up - yet!
I've just realized I have more white than I thought I did too and then just bought some more. But it looks great with so much color in the garden. Makes it pop!


I have the chocolate Joe Pye weed too, but it keeps begging me for the water it rarely gets! I get too lazy to water in the fall, and counting on rain around here just lets me down.


I have yet to get an image of an anemone this season that I'm happy with - and I have searched through many gardens. Yours have turned out beautifully Kathleen.


Love the shots of the white anemone. My 'Honorine Jobert' did very well the first year, but the next two years a black beetle completely ate them up. Bummer! I miss them.

I have been meaning to try N. Sylvestris and Cat's Whiskers. C's W is such an elegant annual!
