Flowers For Fall

Anemone

Say "uh-NEM-oh-nee." Now you understand the clever subtitle and also how to pronounce this fall jewel's name. Japanese anemone, a hybrid of several species, offers handsome, maple-like foliage. Every autumn, long, upright wands rise from the leaves, bearing silky blooms with green eyes surrounded by yellow or orange stamens. They make excellent cut flowers.

Anemones like moist, fertile, well-drained soil and light afternoon shade. 'Honorine Jobert' (single white blooms) is my top pick, but I also recommend 'September Charm' (single rose-pink), 'Bressingham Glow' (semidouble raspberry-pink), and 'Queen Charlotte' (semidouble pink).
