Other Japanese anemones of note are Anemone x hybrida ‘Whirlwind’ (double white) in the Western Reserve Herb Society’s Terrace Garden, and Anemone tomentosa ‘Robustissima’ in the Hidden Garden between the Rose Garden and the Terrace. Asters and goldenrods are blooming in the Hershey Children’s Garden, Inspiration Butterfly Garden, C.K. Patrick Perennial Border and Woodland Garden. Between East Boulevard and the Eleanor Armstrong Smith Glasshouses is an aromatic aster (Symphyltrichum oblongifolium ‘October Skies’ that blooms just as much in September.
