Buy Anemone × hybrida 'Honorine Jobert' Japanese anemone: Lights up the garden in late summer

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

    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.

Happy with purchase but plant invasive


Add life and colour in autumn but take uo a lot of space if your soil is rich.



I would definitely buy this plant again


Crocus plants are reliable and arrive in good order

sweet pea



Beautiful plant, difficult to establish


I have several of these in my garden, which are stunning. This plant has been difficult to establish, requiring copious watering in the hot weather. Hopefully all will be well.

This flower was here when we came 30+ years ago. It flowered till two years ago when it was accidentally sprayed with weedkller. No flower last year, but is back again this year with at least 20 buds. Pretty and tough.





Crocus for me!

paul rosebush



they are lovely but much smaller -shorter than i hoped


I planted them in a flower bed




I bought a pink one!


I had managed to clear an overgrown patch and this was a replacement for another of this species which was small and struggling. it was a small plant, but flowered, now waiting to see if it survived the winter! I am a keen and experienced gardener, but not clueless.

Revd. magi



Very pleased


Easy to grow, happy in semi-shade, planted in July but flowered already in the first year, long lasting elegant flowers, coming back strong after the winter.

Hi, if I was to but the Japanese anemone plants now would they be likely to produce many flowers by this September - I'm hoping to use them as cut flowers for my wedding. Thanks so much in advance.


Hello, It is not something we could guarantee, however if they are given good conditions, there is an excellent chance that they will produce some flowers. Keep in mind however that the older plants sold in a 2-litre pot, will probably produce even more!


Are Japanese anemonies suitable for cut flower use?


Hello, The flowers of these beautiful plants often wilt quite quickly after being cut, so I would not recommend them for cutting. I have heard though that you can prolong their life in a vase if you dip the freshly cut stems in boiling water for 30 seconds before putting them in a vase.


I have just ordered a 9cm pot containing this anemone and I plan to keep it in a pot so I would like to know what size a pot should I move it to. Thank you.


Hello, These plants will eventually get quite big, so if you are looking for a long term home for it, then I would recommend a pot around 45 x 45cm.


I love Japanese Anemones and have tried to grow them several times but without success. Our Peak District garden is at 300m above sea level, west facing, very windy, partially shaded, lots of slugs and snails. I've tried plants from Crocus, and transplants from a friend who was certain they would grow anywhere, but none have survived the winter (obviously our winters are pretty hard and long). Would love to try them again - is it a hopeless case or can you tell me how to succeed?


Morning These plants are fully hardy and general quite tough, creating substantial clumps once they get established. It is hard to say exactly why they won't grow in your garden but if you think that perhaps the young plants are being eaten by slugs and snails, then maybe try and protect them with one of the cloches, and also add a generous amount of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring. If this doesn't work then it does sound as though it is an aspect or cultural problem. I have attached a link to one of our cloches which has a copper ring around the bottom to deter slugs and snails which might help. Sorry I can't be more help this time

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?

The traditional cottage garden was an intensive, yet carefree mixture of fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers all crowded into a tiny space. Today, this informal charm can be recreated using modern varieties that largely take care of themselves around an
