I love the buds on the Anemone hupehensis ‘Prince Henry’ because they are fuzzy. I can't wait for the pink flowers.
I've never been a big fan of marigolds. These were billed as heirloom by Burpee although no introduction date was provided to back up that claim. But who could resist a description that included mention of Gertrude Jekyll and her preference for drifts of tall marigolds in the middle or back of her borders? I have been very pleased with these and will be planting them again.
The multitude of blossoms on my Seven Sisters rose have been replaced by a multitude of rose hips. Surprisingly, to date, nothing has been snacking on them.
