Apache beads, Anemopsis californica, is an attractive marginal plant native to North America. It forms a clump of broad green leaves from which large, unusual white, sweet-scented flowers, often flushed with pink, appear from July to September. Its leaves can take on red and orange tones in autumn. It’s a great choice for growing at the edge of a pond or in a bog garden.
