ANEMONE x hybrida 'Robustissima'

Mark A. Miller

Family

Ranunculaceae

Botanical Name

ANEMONE x hybrida 'Robustissima'

Plant Common Name

Fall-flowering Anemone, Hybrid Anemone, Robust Anemone

General Description

This outstanding fall-flowering anemone is a powerhouse for the late-season perennial border. It bears tall, airy stems covered with numerous large buttercup-like flowers of pale mauve-pink above spreading mounds of dark green, lobed foliage. Blooms appear from late summer to fall and are attractive to bees.

Grow fall-flowering anemones in sites with part sun and average to moist, humus-rich soil. If left undisturbed they will spread vigorously, so it is best to divide them every two to three years.
