The species belong to the genus Neozoanthus, which was previously known only from a single species in the Indian Ocean.

The only previous species of Neozoanthus was described in 1972 from Madagascar, and subsequently it was not seen for almost 40 years, until recent research had ascertained that new Pacific specimens likely belonged …

Japanese anemones Care

A few years ago I might never have picked Japanese Anemone as an easy-care brown-thumb type of perennial. Somehow I had the impression they were a tad fussy. There are two reasons for this: they have a tendency to spread, sometimes like crazy, and late-fall planting sometimes fails, likely because of a particularly bad winter or lack of time to get established before winter hits hard. I’m rethinking this now, because after a very dry and hot summer …

I featured the flowers in the Daisy Border in my GBBD post earlier this week and Christina asked when I would show a long shot of the border. So here it is. The biggest problem is that it never seems to matter when I try to photograph the border I get some sort of glare from the sun so this is the best it gets. As you can see it isn’t a long border – little more than 9ft but it is quite deep and very slopping. I struggled with how to plant on such …
