October Plant of the Month
Anemone 'Pretty Lady Susan'
-Pretty Lady Series Japanese windflower
by Adrienne Roethling,
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 Susan' is part of a new series grown for their large flowers on graceful stems held above a nice compact sized plant. Vibrant pink flowers with a bright yellow eye adorn this anemone during several weeks beginning in late summer. Expect maturity to reach 12” tall by 18” wide. Anemone 'Pretty Lady Susan' grows best in rich soils with good winter drainage.
