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.
