October Plant of the Month -
Anemone 'Pretty Lady Diana'
by Adrienne Roethling,
Director of Curation and Mission Delivery
Anemone is a large group plants belonging to the buttercup family. Some bloom in spring and while others bloom in fall. The fall blooming anemones have received a bad reputation for being invasive. Thanks to several plant enthusiasts, we now have varieties to choose ideal for smaller gardens.
Anemone 'Pretty Lady Diana' is part of a new series grown for their large flowers on graceful stems held above a nice compact sized plant. Diana has bright pink single flowers that begin blooming in August and last well through frost. This non-invasive windflower will reach 18" tall but 24" wide. You will get the best results when planted in partial shade.
