Japanese Anemone/ Today's Flowers

Not many perennials are fresh this time of year, so Japanese anemones are a welcome sight in my and several of my friends' gardens. I haven't figured out why more people don't grow them! Can you help me out here?

And as you can see they are floriferous once they become well established.

Maybe people don't know about them? I need to see if they will grow in the desert.

I always let out a little "ooooohhh" when I open your blog page. Your photos are wonderful, and this is no exception! Lovely flowers.

I would say these are two-toned pinks as in blush and bashful (to steal a line from "Steel Magnolias."

I have some big groups of this plant in my yard also. They are tough, which is great, and they flower when not that much else is going. I truly love their round buds. But the slight brown edges mine have too make a truly perfect photo a hard thing to achieve.

I don't know why more people grow them either. There are many colors too. White, pink, dark pink and wine colored and there are singles and near doubles. Really pretty. MB

RuneE said...

They are beauties indeed - thank you for sharing!

I don't know the flower @ all, more's the pity.
They are very pretty.

Rose said...

I don't think I had ever seen these before but have heard of them...they are elegant and beautiful.

see you there! said...

We don't grow them because I've never seen or heard of them. I'm going to show DH (the gardener here) this picture and maybe next year some will appear in our garden.

Fantastic! What a wonderful shot! Just perfect.

Shammickite said...

I had one of these lovely plants, but this year it got crowded out by some faster growing sedum one side and galliardia the other side, so I moved it to another location, and then the dog ate it!
So I'll have to make do with your photos this year and hope that the roots got established enough to make an appearance next year!

Floriferous... now THERE'S a word you don't hear every day! Yes, quite! I especially like the way you captured the texture on those fuzzy buds.

Wonderful flowers!

Did I say to you that your banner is gorgeous?

Tommy v said...

great photo of the beautiful flowers

Quiet Paths said...

They look so delicate. You have me stumped as to why I don't see them more. They are perfect.

Mary said...

They are beautiful! I think I tried them once, years ago. I cannot remember what happened to them, but if I had to guess, I'd say they were eaten by the deer. :) I'll have to try again.

Leedra said...

Beautiful flower, great photographs.
