Japanese Anemones provide a welcome explosion of blooms during August and September in my New York Garden. They rise above very abundant foliage on elongated stems. The plant likes rich, well-drained soil, but it can also be invasive in those conditions, surrounding and crowding out other plants.

This anemone is useful for its late bloom -- in my Tennessee garden, it could bloom into late October (my photo above was taken 10/28) -- but be aware that it can be a real thug. It will try to take over the world!
