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.
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.
