Japanese anemones provide a splash of colour, in a mix of pink and/or white flowers, at a time of year when many other flowering plants are starting to fade. This also makes them a welcome addition to a garden for anyone who has wildlife in mind as they provide valuable pollen and nectar to late flying pollinators, including bumblebees.
Where to grow:
As Japanese anemones thrive in shade and don't mind the soil on the dry side, they make an excellent choice for planting under trees, in woodland locations and brightening up a shady part of your garden. They even work well in containers.
How to grow:
Japanese anemones should be grown in a moist but well-draining soil in a partially shaded area for best results. For continuous flowering through late summer and autumn, be sure to deadhead regularly and give an annual mulch in winter or even early spring, when you can also tidy up any dead or messy foliage.
As for most perennials and shrubs, for planting, dig a hole as deep as the pot you bought it in and twice as wide. Mix the removed soil with some organic matter, compost or leaf mould. Add the pot to the hole insuring the plant remains at the same depth as it was in the pot, then fill around the plant with the removed soil you mixed and firm the plant in gently. Water in well and apply a mulch to keep the moisture in the soil. If you are planting in the summer season you will need to water regularly in the first season until the roots are established.
Japanese anemones are pretty low maintenance. You can cut them back after flowering or leave the seed heads on over winter to offer the birds some extra food. It's just a case of tidying up the foliage in spring to allow for fresh new growth and maybe adding a mulch around this time to give them a boost for the season. Clumps can be divided every few years in autumn or spring. When you do divide and relocate plants, they may look unhappy for a while but they will bounce back.
As Japanese anemones can self seed as well as spread via their rhizomes, in perfect conditions they can become somewhat invasive. This is easily controlled by removing any unwanted new shoots as they appear plus dividing and replanting established clumps as previously mentioned should keep them under control.
