Japanese Anemones

Japanese Anemones (Anemone) are a beautiful cotton candy colored fall flower. While they also grow in a shade of bright white, the pink colored ones are my favorites.

When this plant is in full bloom, it reaches up to 4 feet in height. Broad, sturdy stems (that resemble sticks) grow out of the ground. On these stems grows the most beautiful fall flowers I have ever seen.

The beauty and color of this plant make me wonder why they grow in the fall and not in the spring. I do realize however that fall also needs bright colored flowers as well.

They begin blooming in late summer and grow all the way to the fall months. They will continue to survive until frost begins.

The great thing about this plant is that it is a perennial. So every year you will get to enjoy its beauty again and again.
