Family

Ranunculaceae

Botanical Name

ANEMONE x hybrida 'Honorine Jobert'

Plant Common Name

Fall-flowering Anemone, Honorine Jobert Anemone

General Description

The bright white flowers of ‘Honorine Jobert’ will brighten any late season border. The hybrid fall-flowering anemone is derived from two parent species, Anemone hupehensis var. japonica and Anemone vitifolia, which originate from China and Japan. It is a vigorous hardy clump-forming plant that spreads over time to form colonies.

The leaves are medium green, lobed and maple-shaped. In late summer to fall it bears tall, airy stems covered with numerous large buttercup-like flowers of white (sometimes tinged pink in the back) with golden and green centers. The tall stems should be cut back once the flowers are spent to keep plants looking neat.

Grow hybrid fall-flowering anemone in sites with partial sun and average to moist, humus-rich soil. If left undisturbed it will spread vigorously, so it is best divided every two to three years. Plant this anemone in mixed borders with ample space. It pairs well with woodland asters, sedges and hostas.
