Fall Blooming Anemones
Does anyone grow these?
I've been lusting after some fall blooming plants other than the ubiquitous mums and asters. I've been homing in on Japanese anemones and love the pale pink colors. So, yesterday I bought 3 of the Anemone x hybrida 'Pink Saucer' plants because not only did they have several gorgeous unopened buds but the price at the Big Orange was $5/ea. I figure one out of these may survive.... I know nothing of the care and feeding of these lovlies. Does anyone here grow these and what can you tell me about their habits? I think they are a lot LIKE Honorine Jobert, but not quite... as they are hybrids. I hear they need winter protection, but the hardiness zone is 4-8. Being a solid five it should be ok. Waiting to hear. Thanks so much.
