General Description

When summer fades into fall, the Splendens Japanese anemone grabs the attention with showy pink blossoms. This herbaceous perennial is native to China and Japan. The cultivar 'Splendens' bears clusters of rounded, five-petaled variably pink to rose flowers (with a hint of fuchsia) on tall, wiry stems from late summer into fall. Each flower has a central tuft of golden yellow stamens. The large, hairy, deeply lobed leaves are concentrated toward the plant's base.

Japanese anemone grows best in consistently moist but well-drained soil in partial shade. It spreads vigorously in fertile, moist, humus-rich soil. Use 'Splendens' in mixed borders or along a woodland edge or stream. It is also excellent for cutting and enjoying in a vase bouquet. Deer will not eat Japanese anemone foliage or flower buds.
