Whirlwind is a lovely addition to any garden and makes a whimsical statement in the late summer into the fall.
The whole group of Japanese Anemones, while not all are from Japan, make up a magnificent, underused group of perennials for late summer and fall bloom. These plants begin their big show when everything else is going by. And what a show it is!
They form handsome plants up to 2 or 3 feet, and then put up elegant ball-shaped buds on slender stems. Then the flowers open in vivid jewel-tone colors, up to 4 across. These flowers add absolutely stunning color in late summer, and are some of the best flowers of all for cutting. Like a rose, each flower comes on its own elegant thin long stem. You’ll love any arrangement with these beauties. Or if you leave them in the garden, they’ll keep it bright right up until frost.
