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

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to November
  • Flower colour: white with a blue reverse
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The winner of the 2011 Chelsea New Plant of the Year, this anemone was discovered, and has been trialed for the last 10 years by Elizabeth MacGregor on her nursery in Scotland. It is believed to be a cross between early and late flowering forms (possibly A. rupicola & A. hupehensis), and the result is a plant which flowers intermittently from May to November. Each pure white petal has a distinct grey-blue streak along the reverse, so when in bud, or when the flowers nod and half close (in the mornings and evenings) the flowers look bluish, but when they are fully open they are a dazzling pure white. Ideal for the woodland garden or partially shaded bed, its long flowering period and pretty colouring is sure to make this new kid on the block very popular indeed.

    These plants can be quite difficult to grow, so are probably better suited to the more experienced gardener.

  • 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.

I wouldn't buy again, too difficult to establish

Loved the look of these plants and bought 3. 2 died within weeks of being planted. One made it through winter and started growing again in spring but in the hotter summer faded away and let me with none. Never saw a single one of the interesting blooms.

A beautiful addition to the garden

I planted them in my front borders to give colour for a long period of time-they are so beautiful and delicate looking but are tougher than they look-already this year all the leaves are out and really healthy and looking forward to another beautiful display this year

The flowers of this plant are just so beautiful!

This is a small plant so great for a small garden and would probably work well in a pot too. The white flowers are absolutely beautiful with purple stripes down the back of the petals. The flowers also last a long time.

Lovely healthy plants that only stopped flowering with the frosts. I have read reviews that have said these are difficult but I have found them rewarding and easy on my clay soil - would definitely buy again. Elegant plant with lovely flowes

Love anemone but didn't want the more invasive plants in flower section of allotment. Think they suffered establishing with very hot summer in 2018 as they were more productive as weather cooled. Only two of the the three lived, the one that was very weak and sickly on arrival (which I reported) survived on planting out.

A winner

This anemone is a winner. It was planted out as a very young plant in mid-February 2018 and it had to endure three lots of "beasts from the east" up here in N. Yorkshire, yet by mid-May it was producing its first flowers which were long lasting and aesthetically very pretty. Furthermore the flowering season continued non-stop into late September. However care has to be taken to keep the surrounding soil fairly moist and it does need to have some shade, especially in a very hot summer.

Love this! Bought a bunch last spring and they flowered their hearts out. Great foliage too - frothy and lime green. They have re-emerged this spring and are thriving. They form pretty rounded shapes as a plant so along with their stunning unusual flowers really ace it in the raised bed. I have an urban courtyard garden and these give a nice contemporary feel to the planting. Although equally I can see they would like great in a more traditional setting. I did buy a second lot and plant out in the autumn and these ones haven't re-emerged this spring. I think I simply planted them far too late in the year.

Over wintered

I bought this plant in the autumn and did not have a chance to plant it out. I overwintered it in my garage and am now starting to harden it off. I am very pleased that it has survived the winter and look forward to seeing great results late summer. Many thanks.

A good investment

An extremely beautiful and elegant Japanese anenome, especially when grown en masse. In a breeze or light wind the petals show off their blue/lavender underside. This plant has the 'wow' factor and easy to grow. I've also successfully grown the plant in a large slate container, keeping an eye on its spread. Easy to divide and pot on elsewhere in the garden, therefore extremely good value

Hi. I have a large clump (planted last summer) that I would like to move. Is this the right time of the year (end of May) and are they moveable without killing them?? Thanks

Deltamae

Hello, How lovely to have a large clump of these! I would not touch them however until they go into their dormant phase, so if you are going to lift and divide them, do it from late autumn to late winter.

I would love to plant my new plot in the garden with Anenome Wild Swan as it sounds amazing, but my soil is clay ish and it is in the shade, not dark but never sunny. I wonder if it would thrive if I put in a lot of manure, grit and new topsoil in the bed before planting. Would this be suitable? Would that be enough?

English rose

Hello, These plants prefer a freely draining soil, so if you can improve the drainage of your clay-based soil, then it should be OK. My main concern however comes from the fact that the area does not receive any sun at all, as although they are happy in partial shade, they do need a little filtered sun.

Helen

I purchased one of these plants at your second Chelsea sale this year and until a few days ago it has been fine. Suddenly it it virtually dead. Leaves all shrivelled and the stems have become prone. I have watered the plant appropriately every day and it is placed in a partially shaded bed. I get several cats come into my garden could they be the culprits by spraying their urine on the plant? What is your advise please. jolo bedford

jolo bedford

Hello, This sudden deterioration could certainly have been caused by the cats, in which case there is little you can do. It may also be caused by too much water though, particularly if you are watering every day. Ideally, you should give it a good soak and then wait until the soil gets reasonably dry before repeating the process again. Perhaps if you cut back a little the plant may pick up.
