Buy Anemone × hybrida 'Elegans' Japanese anemone: A vigorous plant with lots of late summer colour

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

    • Position: full sun or partial shade
    • Soil: moist, fertile, humus-rich soil
    • Rate of growth: fast-growing
    • Flowering period: August to October
    • Hardiness: fully hardy

      The light purple-pink flowers of this Japanese anemone appear on airy stems in clusters of up to 20 at a time in late summer and autumn. This vigorous perennial is ideal for areas of partial shade towards the back of a moist, herbaceous or mixed border. Their flowers produce very little pollen, so are good for including in low allergen gardens, or if you do not want to attract bees into the garden.

    • 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.

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 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?
