Plant Of the Week: Fall Anemone
As we enter the beginning of fall, we need something in the garden--or on the fire escape--to remind us that cool weather is only so far away.
Fall anemones are one of the most delightful plants to grace a late season garden. Happy in dappled shade or even full sun if they have enough water, their long slender stems support cup-shaped flowers that dance in the slightest breeze. Plant them in groups of five or more for the best results. But if space is limited, play them off against lime-green liriope or lavender-blue plectranthus to make them pop.
