Buy Anemone × hybrida 'September Charm' Japanese anemone: Reliable rosy-pink flowers

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: average
    • Flowering period: July to September
    • Hardiness: fully hardy

      A fabulous plant for bringing colour to the garden in late summer and autumn, this anemone has masses of large, rosy pink, cup shaped flowers on tall, wiry stems from July to September. One of the most reliable and free-flowering of the Japanese anemones, these have distinctive purple-tinted stems and outer petals, which contrast beautifully with the pale pink inner petals. The leaves are pretty, too –  vine-like, dark green, and semi-evergreen. They are perfect for areas of partial shade towards the back of a moist herbaceous or mixed border.

    • Garden care: Cut back the stalks after the flowers have faded. Tidy up old dead leaves in March. Apply a generous 5-7cm 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.

Notes on Anemone × hybrida 'September Charm'

"Two tone larger than usual flowers that are mainly dark-pink, shot with paler pink, and a very vibrant addition - especially behind hardy fuchsias"

September star of a shady bed

A tall, attractive Japanese anemone. Its blooms are very visible rising out of a shady spot, beautiful. I planted these about 4 years ago and they have survived in difficult conditions (I planted them too close to a tree) but have really come into their own this year, since we removed the tree. Now they are the star of the show in this shady bed! Very strong stems, don't usually need staking.

Hi. Do l plant in erinacous soil thank you

Scatts

Hello, No need to as these plants will flourish in most moist and fertile soils.

Helen

when is the best time to plant these - now - end of autumn or is it best to wait til spring?

Deborah

Hello there As a general rule full hardy plants that are grown in containers can be planted at any time of year as long as the soil isn't frozen solid. The best times are in the autumn when the soil is still warm enough to encourage root growth but the plant isn't in active growth, or the spring before the temperatures start to rise, so you could still plant this anemone. Hope this helps

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?
