    A fabulous plant for brightening up the garden in late summer, this anemone grows in sun or shade and has masses of elegant, cup-shaped, white flowers on tall, wiry stems from August to October. The leaves are vine-like, dark green, and semi-evergreen. These single flowered Japanese anemones are one of the plants traditionally associated with Japanese gardens, where they're grown against dark rocks or in the shade of trees. Best in partial shade, they are perfect for lighting up a dark corner of the garden, or at the back of a herbaceous border.

  • Garden care: Cut back the stalks after the flowers have faded, and tidy up old dead leaves in March. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring. Avoid moving the plant since it resents disturbance. Where necessary, lift and divide congested clumps in early spring.

    Comments about Crocus Anemonexhybrida'Honorine Jobert':

    One of the first plants that I bought for a difficult and mostly shady boarder so was very unsure how it would perform... I planted it last spring and we have been rewarded end of August, September and now early October with some beautiful, delicate yet sculptural flowers.please note that I needed to construct a little support frame to help the plant when the flowers came to bloom to support there own weight. This plants is really happy & healthy as well as lightening up this dull shady corner. It complements very nicely the white hydrangea "Clarissa" next to it (as there blooms seem to follow each other) and it creat a beautiful focal point.

    • Q:

      I planted out a number of Honorine J anemones in late summer last year. They flowered well and were lovely. In early spring, I removed the untidy old leaves, and gave them a good feed. My problem now is that the plants seem TOO happy!! - they are much bigger than I expected them to be. Huge amounts of foliage, getting very tall and wide, and eclipsing the smaller plants that are around them. Is it safe for me to give them a pretty hard trim back now, or will I sacrifice the flowers in the autumn? (I plan to lift and divide them next spring, and cut back hard once again.)

        I suspect if you cut them back now, it will be at the expense of this years flowers, so it is a bit of a dilemma. Also, as they resent root disturbance, they are best moved only if necessary and in early spring.

    • Q:

      Hi, I'm wondering whether Japanese anemones would be suitable to grow in the bed (1m wide approx) against the house outside the front of the house. They would be in full sun. If yes, and I planted a line of them at the back, what other plants would go well in front of them? We have iron rich soil (north Oxfordshire). Thank you. ps. I am a novice gardener!

        It sounds as though these would do very well in the position you describe, however I would be tempted not to plant anything with them - they have nice, low(ish) foliage and will be happier without the competition.

        Now is a great time to plant fully hardy plants (we do have the hardiness rating on all the plants we sell on the site). Scanning through your list though, the only one that is not fully hardy is the Verbena, so I would wait until spring to plant this out,unless you live in a milder part of the country, or have a sheltered garden.

      The Anemonies are fully hardy and have been grown in their pots, so they can be planted out at any time of year as long as the soil isn't frozen solid. As we have had such bad weather though I would hold off on planting them until the weather warms up. In the meantime the plants can be kept outside against a warm, sunny, sheltered wall until you are ready to plant.

        Thanks for sending the Japanese Anemones, which we received yesterday. We have a query about the timing of planting, and how to store them, given the current weather. We live in Farnham, Surrey where the temperature is currently maxing it 5-6 degrees C during the day, but dips to -1 or -2 at night. Could you confirm if we should plant them out now, or wait until the temperature is above freezing at night?
