A unique and beautiful fall blooming perennial! Charming pale pink flowers measuring up to 3 in. across dance in the wind on tall scapes above attractive, rich green foliage from late summer into fall. The leaves resemble small grape leaves and form a mound about 1 ft. tall. Since they are a bit late to rise in the spring, these plants are an ideal cover for the dying foliage of spring bulbs. An excellent choice for colder climates with shorter growing seasons. It blooms a week or two earlier than the hybrids, beginning in August and continuing into fall. It can usually withstand a light frost before going dormant for the winter.
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 species spreads by means of creeping rhizomes, and many new plants will 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.
