WINNSBORO — The Anemone Garden Club wants to see South Carolina in bloom and has taken steps to make sure it does in Fairfield County.

Last month, they were at work on their little slice of heaven on Vanderhorst Street planting pansies in the shape of South Carolina. But don’t let the flower’s name fool you: Despite being a slang term used for “wimps,” pansies are rather resilient flowers.

It was their resilient nature that prompted the Anemone Garden Club to plant them. Pansies will survive the cold, and will even bloom when other flowers are freezing.

The Anemone Garden Club receives assistance from several areas in the community. First Citizen’s Bank, where their garden is located, provided an irrigation system. The Fairfield Central High School’s Career Center provided benches for passersby to sit and enjoy the space.

The garden is a highlight in a downtown area working to revitalize itself. With well-placed shrubs, a manicured lawn, and now a group of pansy violas planted in the shape of the state, the club has left its mark on the town. The hope is to continue the beautification of Winnsboro and South Carolina.

The Anemone Garden Club holds several work days throughout the year as well as monthly meetings.
