This is anemone ‘Queen Charlotte’ and it’s one of my favorite late blooming plants. The first flower just appeared and the plant will continue to flower for the rest of the season.
But its not just the flower that’s beautiful. The tight purple buds put on a show too.
After the flowers finish, the seeds look like white cotton.
There are lots of different varieties and this is a good time to find a few plants that are on sale.
Anemones are tough and will come back stronger every year.
It’s great to see something come into its prime as the season winds down.
