Japanese Anemone

Japanese Anemone (Anemone hupehensis var. japonica) is one of the subtle joys of the autumn garden.

Normally quite slow to establish, this one has really taken to its position under the shade of the Japanese maple tree. I was only able to get the basic single variety, but it is one of my favourites, none-the-less.

You can see it here with another shade lover, Foam flower (Tiarella cordifolia ‘Jeepers Creepers’)  from the US

  1. I have just started to grow them in my semi-tropical climate. Mine have practically turned into a bush in less than a year and I have already had to divide it. But, I agree that it is a wonderful Fall flower.

    • I certainly hope mine will grow that quickly! Like you, I am in zone 8, but here summer days rarely get above 85F, so I imagine it will be a few more years yet before I get to divide this little beauty 🙂
