Anemone x 'Queen Charlotte'
Japanese Anemone, Windflower
|There are three types of Anemones -- autumn-blooming, spring-flowering and one for rock gardens. All have cup-shaped, single and double blossoms of many colors. Flowers are a mainstay of the spring garden. Excellent cut flower. The popular Japanese Anemones flower in fall in borders and naturalized in clumps. Use the taller, less hardy, spring-flowering types for bedding, containers or forcing into winter bloom indoors. The woodland and rock garden types will also naturalize beneath other early flowering trees, shrubs or bulbs. Plant in fall where hardy, or in spring in northern climates. Protect from wind and afternoon sun. Do not disturb roots, except to divide, as larger plants have larger flowers. Water in dry summers. Roots rot in soggy soil so mulch after ground has frozen.
Semi-double flowers appear on 3-foot plants from late summer until frost.
