Anemone 'Honorine Jobert' (30)ct Flat
Common Name: Japanese Anemone
We are very excited to be able to offer you this popular cottage garden perennial. It is one of the best perennials for adding late season interest in the garden, as it blooms prolifically from late summer through early fall, even until frost in some climates.
‘Honorine Jobert’ produces single, 2-3” wide, pure white flowers with a cluster of bright yellow stamens in the center of each blossom. They are produced atop tall, wiry stems above an attractive clump of dark green foliage. It is a real standout in partial shade where it is happiest.
Japanese anenomes are easy to grow when properly sited. In cooler climates, they can be grown in full sun if a consistant supply of moisture is available. In warmer zones, they need protection from the hot, midday sun; dappled shade is ideal. Plant them in rich, loose, well-drained soil. Dry or excessively wet soil and windy conditions are a sure downfall of this plant.
This perennial spreads by means of creeping rhizomes, and new plants may appear near the original clump in the spring. They are easily transplanted if they show up where they are not wanted. This should be done in the spring. Make sure to provide a heavy mulch in the fall the first two seasons to prevent frost heaving.
Deer and rabbits typically don't bother this plant and it has no serious pest or disease issues.
