Anemone Curtain Call Deep Rose Windflower
Bring long lasting color to your shady gardens with Curtain Call Deep Rose Anemone. Beginning in late summer, this perennial produces dark rose pink flowers that are positioned right above a small mound of green foliage. The flowers are fuller than single, producing a double row of petals.
Growing only 14-18″ tall and 16-18″ wide makes the compact plant perfect for containers, smaller gardens, and for front of the border. It looks beautiful in woodland settings and mixed with other shade perennials in cottage, cutting, and pollinator gardens. It makes an ideal companion to other fall interest varieties, such as Coneflowers, Ornamental Grasses, and Lobelia. Deer and rabbits leave it alone, butterflies, bees and other pollinators often visit it. Referred to commonly as Windflower or Japanese Anemone. It spreads by underground rhizomes and can be used as a ground cover. New plants may grow near the original plants and can be easily transplanted elsewhere. Anemones prefer spring transplanting.
Plant Japanese Anemone in soil that has been amended with compost or organic mater in part shade. Its ideal condition is dappled shade protected from the afternoon sun. Adding a starter fertilizer at planting will encourage root growth. Although once established drought tolerant, for best results water during dry spells, and when plants are setting up buds and blooming. Better still, keep consistently moist.
