The double, or semi-double, form of Anemonopsis macrophylla flowered well this summer and seems as easy to grow in a shady moist spot as the ordinary form.

This wonderful Melianthus, with extra jagged leaves and red flushed stems, came as a seed from Maurizio Usai  of  La Pietra Rossa garden in Sardinia.
It seems to have a more fastigiate shape and has made a handsome plant this year.

Erigeron annuus grows to about 5' and has nice modest white daisies for weeks and weeks. It is a short lived perennial but seeds gently.
