When and where to find Japanese Anemone for sale in SoCal
Okay, I give up. I really want to try Japanese anemones in a part-shade area in my garden here in West Los Angeles / Santa Monica, but can't seem to find them available for purchase here. I'm especially looking for Hadspen Abundance and Honorine Jobert, but can't ever find them. Either the nursery never has any for sale, or (rarely) they get just a few and sell out before I get there. I prefer not to buy online if I can avoid it for these plants.
I've tried the local nurseries in September, October, and/or November for the past couple of years without success. I've asked Monrovia about local (or not-so-local) vendors, but this hasn't worked either.
What am I doing wrong? Is there a secret password or handshake for finding these plants here?!?
Thanks very much!
