Just bought an 'anemone Harmony Scarlet' in a 2-quart container at Home Depot for $8. The tag said it was a shade plant! The bloom looks like a large, bright red poppy, certainly unusual for a shade plant (should have known). Time will tell if it survives in my back yard under an evergreen tree with the branches trimmed about 12 feet above ground.
