More and more plants are getting a little brother, a miniature version that is lower and more compact, but at least as rich and beautiful flowers. Ideal, because there is always room for these dwarf plants. Read about some types of small plants here.
1. Anemone hupehensis ‘Little Princess’
Autumn anemones are lovely late bloomers, such as Anemone hupenhensis ‘Little Princess’. ‘Little’ is well chosen, as these attractive little plants only grow to about 25 cm high. This is in contrast to its larger relatives, which usually unfold their soft pink flowers with a yellow center at a height of about 75 cm. This perennial does well in partial shade and flowers in August-September.

2. Echinacea purpurea ‘Kim’s Knee High’
The red coneflower Echinacea purpurea ‘Kim’s Knee High’ does not grow – as the name suggests – higher than your knee (about 60 cm), while an ordinary Echinacea purpurea reaches 100 cm. This plant blooms profusely from July to September with cerise-colored flowers that put their heads together at one height. It forms a beautiful picture in the border especially with a number of them – 7 to 9 per m².

3. Sanguisorba officinalis ‘Tanna’
The unusual purple-red velvet balls on the branched stems of Sanguisorba officinalis ‘Tanna’ protrude about 70 cm above the earth, while the common pimpernel is at least twice as high. This perennial likes humus-rich soil, does well in partial shade and flowers in July-August.
