ANEMONE x hybrida 'Serenade'
Fall Anemone, Hybrid Anemone, Serenade Windflower
The semi-double rich rose-pink blooms of ‘Serenade’ shine in the late season border. The hybrid perennial 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 puts forth tall, airy stems covered with numerous semi-double buttercup-like flowers with golden yellow centers and rosy pink petals. Its flowers are similar to those of ‘Pamina’ but a bit lighter, looser and larger. The tall stems should be cut back once flowers are spent to keep the 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.
