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.

Charmingly Anemone


I've put this in my border for late season interest. It's a pretty pink and flowered well. I'm hoping it will be bigger this year as it's now established. I plan to buy another one but in white.




Happy to buy again


Always good service & safety packed plants. Plants always look healthy, shame really as I'm a clueless but keen gardener. These flowered well & I'm optimistic for the coming season.

A lovely flower which I'd buy again.


This is a lovely flowering plant in the autumn - I have it next to a dwarf purple buddleia, which complement the foliage and flowers of the anemone.

Not as vigorous on my sandy soil


Anemones have a reputation as a bit of a take-over plant when established. On my sandy, dapple shaded spot they are slow to get going (as we know) but never seem to get happy enough to reveal their plans to take over my garden.'September Charm' is the fourth variety I've tried, and the most successful so far, so I've just bought another to build up the display. On my patch I still have 'serenade' trying her best but the 'king' and 'queen' gave up very quickly. I'm saying no to recommending - not because it's not a great plant, it is, but because it does appear to be a bit picky and you need to manage your soil to get the best out of it.

Useful for late summer colour


These plants are beautiful for the Autumn and late Summer garden, especially if grown in a drift at the back of the border. I would not be without them, but again that is hardly likely as they romp throughout the borders and need stern management to keep them in check. As they seem to grow readily from any tiny piece of root left in the ground this can prove quite a challenge, so it is worth putting them where you can keep a close eye on them and also where they can make a permanent home, as if you try to move them you will have them in both places. In my experience this is by far the most vigorous of the Japanese anemones, so well worth a try if you have found some of the more delicate (but beautful) ones such as Honorine Jobert a bit difficult to grow. Appreciates some compost or manure when planting.

I would buy this product again.


Is happy in a shady corner and gives good colour in the autumn.




Pretty late flowers


I added this to my front border and the delicate flowers appeared when my other plants were fading. A great addition to the garden.

Bought for late summer/early autumn interest


Bought for late summer/early autumn interest in our heavy clay soil Planted out in border last autumn - it survived our winter - is growing well and has flower buds just now (Aug)

Such a welcome sight in late summer


These take a while to get established, and they need adequate water (something to bear in mind with these long hot summers) but once it gets going it's hard to beat. The pink is SO beauteous with all the summer hues and personally I prefer it massively to the double ones, which just don't have the same charm. Five stars.




Slow to establish


Bought this as small plant in 2 litre pot- kept it in its pot until well-rooted as it hates root disturbance. It has been so slow to establish- I thought it will not grow any bigger, but this year has put on a bit of growth, more stems with leaves, but no flowers. I will plant in ground next spring and hopefully will romp away. Nevertheless, a beautiful autumn-flowering plant- can't wait to see it in its full glory when its more mature.

how do i recognise the japanese anemone i planted last year before it flowers? How big should the plant be and what will it look like?


Hello, These plants die back completely in winter, and as they tend to flower from mid- to late summer, they often tend to be late into leaf too. When it does start to emerge, you will see a mound of foliage, which is lobed and toothed.


Hello, I'm new to growing Japanese Anemone and was wondering after the flowers have faded, how far back the stalks should be cut for optimal regrowth next season? Thank you!


Hello there I would cut the stems right back. The plants will send up new flowering stems next year. 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.


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?
