Anemone x lesseri
at Digging Dog
“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
This lovely jewel-box-like hybrid
affords cupped carmine-red
blooms, festooned with spry
yellow anthers above an attractive
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
Size: 12"–15" high x 9"–12" wide; hardy to zone 5.
Anemone x lesseri (P-1827)

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!
Celebrated headliners of the late show!
Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.
