May be A. petiolatum. A rarely offered tender spreading perennial for a container or sunny well-drained border. It produces masses of fluffy flowers over a very long period, from June to December or first frost. An excellent bee and butterfly plant. Lift and over-winter somewhere frost free, and or take cuttings, as you would Pelargoniums etc.

Anemone hybrida 'Honorine Jobert'£5.50
Still the best tall, single white Japanese Anemone in our opinion. Very free flowering, putting on a lovely display of large, single white flowers with a pink tinged reverse from July-September.
A beautiful hardy Fuchsia with slender pure white flowers from June to October, or the first frost. Makes a superb shrub for a border or good sized container.
