its a japanese anemone [Anemone japonica]. It grows in full or part shade and is about 4-5ft tall flower height. it is a very hardy perenninal and when it is happy it can be a bit of a thug. having said that it pulls out easily. would you like some come the spring madperth? if yes let me know.

Ooh, yes please, it's gorgeous!!
I'd absolutely love some!
At the moment, as far as the garden goes, I'll refuse nothing but blows & chrysanthemums!!

whats up with chrysanths? i have a few though not a true favourite they flower until november/december for me. so they earn their keep. remind me come the spring and i will dig some up. will you want a emi double pale pink called september charm as well? I'll post piccies when they come into flower soon.

They remind me of my mum's funeral & I hate the smell of them!
I also cant go near cotoneaster, but thats cos of the wasps liking it!
The September charm sounds lovely ta!!

I know what you mean. we used chrysanths at my mums funeral too but it was her favourite flower. I dont like the smell either but i like the late flower appeal.

It was my mum's too & they were everywhere (I was 9 at the time) & they freaked me out for years after! If I get given flowers that have them included, I say thank you then get them out of the house as soon as (politely) possible!
