Plant Overview

Pure white flowers on 4' stems. Japanese Anemones will grow on pretty much any soil in pretty much any situation, including deep shade.

Flowers from August to October so they are excellent for introducing white into the late summer/early autumn border.

Grows slowly into a good sized clump and will also gently self seed. 

Suitable for cut flowers.

Drought tolerant when established.

Height and spread: 90 x 45 cm

Common name: Japanese Anemone

Synonym: Anemone japonica 'Honorine Jobert'.


Hybrid Japanese Anemones are bred from a plant sent to England by Robert Fortune in 1844 and they have been popular garden plants ever since.

'Honorine Jobert' was bred by M. Jobert in the 19th century and named after his daughter.

All our plants are supplied in 9cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant.
The majority of our plants are grown outdoors. This means that they follow their natural growth patterns and are ready to plant at any time of the year. If you order the plants in winter, they are likely to be dormant and died back to ground level, ready to shoot again in spring - just like the herbaceous perennials in your own garden. Very occasionally, in winter, we may indicate on the packing slip that a plant needs to be hardened off before planting out. This will be because it has just come out of a polytunnel. If you have any questions about our plants or growing methods, please feel free to drop us an email.
We grow most of what we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Our prices include VAT at 20%.
