Fall Blooming Anemones

Japanese Anemone
have to be one of the most beautiful late-season flowers. Their petals have the appearance of being crafted out of delicate paper and their deeply-lobed foliage makes the plant attractive even without the bloom. Anemones come in varying shades of pinks and bright white. Try one of the dwarf ’Pretty Lady’ varieties for something different. We have Anemones of all types. Now is the prime time to get them.
