Japanese Anemones are Great Fall Bloomers

 

Japanese anemone 'Pocohontas' Japanese anemone 'Whirlwind'

While most flowering perennials are slowly shutting down, Japanese Anemones are still in full bloom. Starting in August, they set flower 6 to 8 weeks, well into the fall!

The blossoms make wonderful cut-flower arrangements as the sturdy stalks hold their heads high. Ranging from singles to doubles and everything in between, the different varieties can be white, pink or deep pink. All have buttercup yellow centers. Massed in the garden, Japanese anemones demand attention from passers by.

Grown in part to full sun, Japanese anemones can take most soil types but like regular water. Their leaves will burn in the hot sun if the soil dries out.

They form solid clumps, spreading by underground rhizomes. In good garden conditions, they can be invasive but can be grown in containers or are lovely as a border. Cut them back to the ground at the end of the season but take the time to enjoy the interesting seed heads first.

Most grow up to 3 feet or more but the double rose pink ‘Pocohontas’ is compact, growing only half that height. All are prolific bloomers and a wonderful addition to your garden.
