I’m always thrilled to find a shade plant with interesting (i.e. non-boring-green) color. This plant is a larger member of the genus Anemone, of which the smaller wood anemone emerges along our front sidewalk in March. While the tall pink flowers will be interesting to see next spring, I’m mostly enthralled by the beautiful duotoned green/plum leaves that add an interesting depth to its mounded form.
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
