Anemone x hybrida 'Honorine Jobert'

Description: A late flowering herbaceous perennial useful as providing colour to the border from September to November. An old cultivar of Japanese Anemone but still a firm favourite with pure white single flowers. Best when several plants used to create a drift of autumn colour.

Climate/Position: Sunny position or in light shade.

Height/Spread: 1.2 metres tall, eventually wide spreading clump.

Soil Requirements: Well drained but moisture retentive fertile soils for best results.

Pruning: Cut down stems and old leaves to ground level after flowering in winter.

Special Requirements:

Will take time to establish and then leave undisturbed to allow a spreading clump to develop for best autumn show.

Anemone hupehensis var. japonica x vitifolia. This cultivar was first raised in 1858 and is still a popular favorite.
