Botanical Name

Plant Common Name

Anemone, Harmony Scarlet Anemone

General Description

This Poppy anemone, ‘Harmony Scarlet,’ is a tender perennial with ferny leaves and poppy-like flowers. It grows in a spreading clump that sends up a little forest of slender stalks in spring topped by open, multi-petalled red flowers with a large, dark central disc. It is one cultivar among several in the Harmony Series, all alike except for flower colors, which range from white through pink, orange and red to blue. The parent species is native to the Mediterranean region, a clue to its limited hardiness. Though usually grown as an annual, ‘Harmony Scarlet’ can be perennial in mild climates, re-growing from knobby tubers. It is an early riser. The small ferny leaves emerge in early spring and the clump grows and blooms quickly.

Happiest in a semi-shady spot, ‘Harmony Scarlet’ prefers rich, loamy soil and even moisture. The leaves die back in summer, so give this plant companions that leaf out later and fill the void, for example, hardy geraniums. This is a good plant for texture and color in a container, a moist woodland, or a rock garden.
