Everything Looks Great With Sedum !





These are still yesterday's rainy pictures but I thought .. how many plants look great paired up or at least close to sedum ? .. well at least Autum JOY sedum ? Yes ... Pinky looks fabulous with everything too .. a few of us have a soft spot for Pinky .. we should form a "Pinky Winky" club .. pictures don't lie .. right ?But .. I bought a new little anemone back in early summer .. "Pamina" .. and I find it intriguing right now because it is shorter and more compact than the leggy ones I have. I like order ..out of chaos at the castle some times .. a neat and tidy but gorgeous plant really grabs my attention by now ... end of summer enthusiasm ebbing to plain exhaustion .. especially after this morning's efforts with heavy bags of compost and mulch .. looking at this cute perky anemone is a nice change .. no buds are opened yet .. but I just know they are going to be eye candy for sure !

Those Anemones are going to be glorious I bet. Can't wait to see the flowers. I ordered a Pinky Winky to plant this fall. Can't wait, after seeing yours I'm really excited!

Hi perennialgarden !
I just know you are going to love Pinky .. even after some branches being broken with the raccoon catcher's ladder, it still rallied on and bloomed wonderfully.
I can't wait to see how beautiful it will be next year too !

They do look great, especially when the buds haven't opened up yet. I sort of wish they'd stay that way, I'm afeared of color, but I'll admit it's pretty.

I want to be a pinky club gal. Mine is growing nicely. I think it's a whole two feet tall now.

Anna .. mine is almost a huge "fan" shape .. due to some mishaps with the raccoonman's ladder .. but it is a beauty and I love it : )
