     Blooming in early summer, Tall Thimbleweed provides a beautiful burst of color to gardens settling in after the spring bounty.  It is an airy plant that blooms on slender stems above dark-green foliage.


     After the flower fades, green fruit clusters remain, eventually turning into a showy, fluffy mass of seeds.


     Tall Thimbleweed thrives in dry, rocky soils and part shade.  It is not as aggressive as other Anemones and makes a great ground cover for areas between trees and other shady sites.  You can even plant it under your Black Walnut.
