The splendid Clive James

refers, in a recent poem about the end of his life, to
Japanese anemones, pale and frail.
But only the white variety is pale,
and the plants are anything but frail -
in fact they can be invasive.
Is this poetic licence,
or just an expression of ignorance ?

Any real recommendations for reading Clive James? In answer to your question, my guess would be "Ignorance."
