Anemone 'Curtain Call Pink' PP30739 (30)ct Flat
Curtain Call Series
Common Name: Japanese Anemone
This fall blooming Anemone is one of the final performers in your garden for the growing season. Beginning in late summer, this perennial produces bright rose pink flowers that are positioned right above a small mound of green foliage. The flowers are fuller than single, producing a double row of petals. Its shorter stature lends itself well to containers, both as monoculture and in combination with other perennials. It spreads by underground rhizomes. This is a perfect companion to other fall interest varieties, such as Coneflowers, Ornamental Grasses, and Stonecrop.
A staple item for late summer and fall borders, Japanese Anenomes are graceful plants with beautiful, satiny flowers borne on tall stems above a clump of shorter basal foliage. Watching them sway in the breeze brings a feeling of calm and peace to the garden. Since they are a bit late to rise in the spring, they make an ideal cover for the dying foliage of spring bulbs.
Japanese anenomes are easy to grow when properly sited. In cooler climates, they can be grown in full sun if a consistent 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.
