Japanese Anemone


Japanese Anemone

I bought this one for its deep pink colour. Pleased with this first flower. Name translates 'Little Red Riding Hood' and looks to me more double than 'Red Riding Hood' which is also available. It does seem to be short growing too, being only about 10" tall, so good for front of border.

That's a nice alternative to the usual pink or white ones.

It is. Am very pleased. I bought three and they are only just getting going. A little mildewy though..will need to spray.

I have had it in the past with some of mine. These arrived with a note saying they had been sprayed...but I think I will spray them again....its keeping on top of everything that I'm finding hard. I spent most of today cutting the grass. I have Lots of weeding to do as well, the weeds in the lawn need re-spraying. The grass needs scarifying...the moss needs killing...its a full time job! And I have far too many pots that need watering every 2 days.

Oh the joys of gardening Karen...and don't get me started on pots. Every year I say I will reduce them...and I do...but somehow they increase again!
