Here is one of the new, shorter cultivars of the Japanese Anemone bred by Bressingham Gardens in the UK. I bought this last fall at Moore and Moore, and put it in a West Meade garden. It is almost identical to the taller variety “Margarete”, but seems less likely to topple on its shorter stems. Anemones are an outstanding choice for the autumn garden here in Nashville. They are very happy in partial shade, and particularly love a north facing border with morning sun.
In the next few posts I will feature some more of the plants that make late summer and fall gardens so appealing, including photos of salvias from a garden in Green Hills
