Great Expectations


While vacationing in Victoria, BC a few years ago, I fell in love when I saw these beautiful perennial Japanese anemones in the gardens at Government House that was just up the street from our condo. They extend the blooming season flowering in September.

I have great expectations for Anemone x hybrida ‘Honorine Jobert’ and long to see it mature and fill my September garden with its beauty.


This is my favorite garden tool. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hello Donna,
    I just planted three Honorine Jobert anemones this week and three Margarette’s. I love anemones so much for blooming this time of the year in my shady garden spots. In fact I love anything that blooms this late in the season ๐Ÿ˜‰
    I got the Hibiscus seeds you sent and I cannot thank you enough for them.You have the cutest seed packets and stationary.
    Thank you,
