Behnke Garden Club Specials
Japanese Anemones
Oh, what a beautiful season Fall is. As Japanese Anemones begin blooming and 'dance' on the cool breezes the season springs alive. The big, satiny flowers adorn the garden in shades of pink-lavender, rose and white. Depending on the variety, the flowers may be single or semi-double and plants will range in height from 18"-24" tall. They prefer a humus rich area that gets a light shade in the middle of the day.
