Well, this is what happens when the garden gets non-stop rain for a couple of weeks: the enormous anemone! This cultivar, Anemone 'Andrea Atkinson,' generally tops out around 3 feet tall. It's now over my head. I really like this Anemone, despite its having white flowers because, even at this height, it doesn't need staking.
Anemone 'Party Dress,' on the other hand, is only about 2 1/2 feet high, yet it still flops horridly. I'm a sucker for the pink double flowers, however.
Late summer is also the time for the toad lilies. Bad name, great group of plants. The toad on steroids is Tricyrtis 'Tojen.' One of my 'Tojen' plants is over 3 feet tall, but both of them have leaves about twice the size of a normal toad lily.
The spotted beauty is T. 'Gilt Edge,' the name referring to the variegated foliage.
