Dreaming swan is a 'new to me' Japanese anemone. The large semi double flowers open tinged pink and turn to white.
The blooms are gracefully carried on wiry stems, which dance and sway in the breeze.
The flowers have lavender blue bands on the reverse of their petals. When the sun shines on them, they look so pretty.
Early morning dew also adds to the picture.
Early this morning I found a creature fast asleep in a flower.
Japanese Anemone dreaming swan is a long flowering perennial. It is said to be deer and rabbit resistant.
I think it would look lovely planted among grasses.
I may try this next year. I have divided some feather grass recently and have 12 little plants in the greenhouse.
Watch this space.
Enjoy your weekend and the lovely warm weather we are experiencing at the moment.
