Anemone lesseri

Anemone

Wind Flower

“The floure never openth it selfe, but when the wynde bloweth,” wrote William Turner, in A New Herbal (1560). In our garden, however, we enjoy the buttercup-shaped flowers in any weather, windy or not. Elegant and deceptively delicate, Anemone is also tough and undemanding. Most will multiply readily in rich, sandy loam, and are perfect for naturalizing in a woodland setting.

Anemone x lesseri full sun  partial shade

This lovely jewel-box-like hybrid affords cupped carmine-red blooms, festooned with spry yellow anthers above an attractive non-aggressive bed of low growing ferny green foliage. Parented by Anemone multifida and Anemone sylvestris, Anemone x lesseri’s fine cut palmately lobed leaves and uniquely colored up-facing flowers make compelling additions to the rockery, an open woodland planting or a borderís front lines. Appreciative of morning light accompanied by dappled afternoon shade on hot days, its dwarf habit requires minimal care, resists those meddlesome deer and prospers in moist well-drained organic-rich soil.

Blooms June.

Size: 12"–15" high x 9"–12" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
