Growing considerably smaller than other Anemones, at only 15-18″ 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 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.
Plant Japanese Anemone in soil that has been amended with organic mater in part shade. Its ideal condition is dappled shade protected from the afternoon sun. 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.
