Anemone x hybrida ‘Andrea Atkinson’
at Digging Dog


Wind Flower

“The floure never openth it selfe, but when the wynde bloweth,” wrote William Turner, in A New Herbal (1560). In our garden, however, we enjoy the buttercup-shaped flowers in any weather, windy or not. Elegant and deceptively delicate, Anemone is also tough and undemanding. Most will multiply readily in rich, sandy loam, and are perfect for naturalizing in a woodland setting.

These beauties sway on tall but sturdy stems above lush deep green Maple-shaped leaves. Downy green buds open into semidouble white flowers with chartreuse eyes. In winter, seed heads turn a rich chocolate brown, making ‘Andrea Atkinson’ an entertaining addition in drifts or borders. For vivacious color, try it with Aster cordifolius or blue flowering Geraniums.

Blooms August–late October.

Size: 4-1/2'–5' high x 3' wide; hardy to zone 5.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

Our favorite plant this week: We love Tricyrtis 'Empress' for its unique, late blooming flowers. Renowned for its extra large and wider open flowers, this exquisite, newly introduced Toad Lily is a formosana hybrid. Ornate, spidery spaced petals are inscribed by occasional darkened tips and irregular velvet-rich deep purple spots, stipples and mottling on a creamy white background. An enticing fall beacon amongst the shadows, ‘Empress’s showy terminal blooms are supported by an upright robust gathering of lustrous, semi-clasping dark green foliage that stays dapper all season.
