Buy Anemone × hybrida Königin Charlotte Japanese anemone syn. Queen Charlotte: Brings autumn colour to the garden

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 bringing colour to the garden in late summer and autumn, this Japanese anemone produces masses of large, pink, cup shaped flowers on tall, wiry stems from August to October. The leaves are pretty too, being vine-like and semi-evergreen. This award-winning, semi-double Japanese anemone is perfect for areas of partial shade towards the back of a moist herbaceous or mixed border. If left undisturbed, they will soon spread to form majestic clumps.

  • Garden care: Cut back the stalks after the flowers have faded and tidy up the old foliage 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, but when necessary, lift and divide congested clumps in early spring.

Notes on Anemone × hybrida Königin Charlotte

"A round-petalled, neatly-formed pale-pink anemone without the usual cool-blue cast, enhanced by apple-green foliage that softly cuddles the lower stems"

I would buy this product again

Bought a few of these and grow well, haven't been in for long so don't know about prolific self seeding yet!

Excellent quality plants as always from Crocus.

I put one plant in a pot, which did not do too well. The other two plants I have put in the garden and have flowered over a long period into autumn. This spring I will transfer the third plant from the pot into the garden, where I am sure it will thrive much better in the future.

Great in groups with their heads nodding in the breeze.

Very pretty with healthy green foliage. Look great planted in groups of 3's and 5's but disappointingly short flowering season.

When is the best time to plant the border on a budget? We are intrested in purchasing the plants suggested on 'money's tight' pre-planned border. Can you suggest when it is best to plant these plants?

As a rule hardy plants grown in containers (such as the majority of the ones we sell), can be planted at any time of year as long as the soil isn't frozen solid. The best times to plant however are in the autumn when the soil is still warm enough to encourage root growth but the plant isn't in active growth, or in spring before the temperatures start to rise. You can also plant in mid summer as long as you make sure the plants are kept well watered.

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.

Crocus

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?
