A splash of coloUr #2003

The garden tends towards dull at this time of year and Anemone hupehensis (commonly known as the Chinese or Japanese anemone, thimbleweed, or windflower) is a welcome brightener.

Two varieties – this one and white.

Which is very attractive, but despite throwing large chunks of cash in the vague direction of all and sundry horticulturalists, we’ve yet to grow them successfully.

My Uncle Frank – after unsuccessfully trying to grow carrots over a number of years (and he was a GOOD plantsman…) – told me “You don’t tell your garden what to grow, your garden tells YOU”

  1. I like this flower – and something else seems to like it too!

  2. I wish I was half as good as him.

  3. Your Uncle Frank is a very wise man. Love it when we concede however rerluctantly, that something is out of our control. PS. Keep trying; it’s a sweet little flower!
