Japanese anemone add late summer early fall color
Planting a japanese anemone now will still give you time to enjoy their blooms come August and September. These plants are in my top ten of well-rounded, easy disease free perennials and I recommend them to everyone. The foliage looks good throughout the summer and you'll be so happy once you start to see their sweet nodding faces at the end of the summer when everything else looks burnt and tired. Mostly you'll find pink and white flowers but I've been noticing some deeper pink hybrids in the last few years. There are dwarf varieties as well if you have a smaller space you don't want taken over by the foliage.
