Anemones and Tricyrtis

Two Anemones I bought a couple of years ago are finally blooming. The first photo is Anemone Japonica 'Mont Rose'. Quite a lovely tall flower. It is a mystery that not many nurseries online offer this variety for sale.

The second Anemone may be A. 'Pamina' but I can't be sure. I received a very small plant and the leaves shriveled within a month so I thought it was dead and lost the name tag. But it sprouted again late next spring but it didn't flower. I thought it died again but it produced three small flowers this year so hopefully the plant will become more robust in a few years.

More of the Tricyrtis we bought in late summer are blooming.
** Update. Well I really botched the identification of the Tricyrtis. The first one is actually T. lasiocarpa 'Amethystina' and it really is a beauty.



Tricyrtis lasiocarpa 'Amethystina'. In my opinion, a very beautiful toad lily. I've corrected the names of the other Tricyrtis too.

Hello Ki,

There seems to have been an explosion in toad lilies this year - it's fun seeing them bloom like a spotted wave across the garden blog world.
I can see why you're fond of Tricyrtis lasiocarpa 'Amethystina'.

A friend passed a division of an unnamed toadlily on to me in early spring and it's just now budding. If it actually blooms I'll try to get photo onto my blog.

Hi Annie,
Good to hear from you and I'm embarrassed I have not returned the visits...hopefully to be rectified soon. Because I have not been reading blogs, I've missed "like a spotted wave (of toad lilies) across the garden blog world" you described.

Please do post a pic of your gift Tricyrtis. I will be on a trip next week and may actually have some downtime to peruse some blogs.

Ki
