Cheerful fall anemones (pics)

Yes, they may be invasive, but isn't it wonderful to see the familiar anemone faces--so bright and cheerful.

The pink is Bressingham Glow; the white, Honorine Jobert.

The cabbage butterflies love aster Purple Dome.

And this is a Viceroy, is it not. On a buddleia, logically.

This beauty is on verbena bonariensis (lives over the winter here sometimes and rampantly self-sows).

Unfortunately, its wing was injured. Many of the butterflies I find with damaged wings.

Fantastic!! Love your butterflies and I really like the Bressingham Anemone- what a bright color !

RE: Cheerful fall anemones (pics)

Beautiful!! Thanks for sharing and for identifying a mystery volunteer growing in one of my beds. It's verbena bonariensis and I will watch it closely. I've heard it can be a thug. If I'm not mistaken the BF is a great spangled fritillary.

The anemones in my folks' yard have never been terribly invasive -- and the De Caens have be extremely hard to keep alive. (Pity. I really like the range of colors they come in.)

aster purple dome

Aster Purple Dome is wonderful this year. In many years, it gets brown and ratty foliage from ground to mid-plant. This year, with ample rainfall, it is quite healthy looking.

I *love* Japanese anemones! I have "Honorine Jobert" and "Pamina".
