Family

Ranunculaceae

Botanical Name

ANEMONE x hybrida

Plant Common Name

Fall-flowering Anemone, Hybrid Anemone

General Description

For the late season perennial border there are arguably no better flowering ornamental than the hybrid fall-flowering anemone. It 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 buttercup-like flowers in shades of rose, pink or white.

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 in mixed borders with space.
