Anemone 'Frilly Knickers'
Height x Spread: 60cm x 45cm
Ever so pretty and delicate with its romantically ruffled semi-double petals, Anemone 'Frilly Knickers' has already won the hearts of many people this summer, winning the HTA Virtual Plant Awards 2020 with an amazing 33% of the vote.
It is an Anemone full of surprises. Its full buds hint of double flowers within but actually reveal semi-double blooms - each pure white petal being suffused with pale lilac and finely frilled, surrounding a boss of deep golden yellow stamens. Glimpse beneath and the petals are brushed with deeper violet, a gorgeous composition.
Easy to grow and full of flower, it creates an amazing display in the border from early July into September, effortlessly bridging the August downtime period that some gardens can suffer from. It prefers part shade but can cope with more sun, if the soil is sufficiently good, moist and humus -rich. Ramp up the romantic vibe by combining it with dark leaved Actea or Ageratina.
