Care of the plant Anemone x hybrida or Japanese anemone

The genus Anemone, family Ranunculaceae, includes more than 100 species of perennial herbaceous plants native to temperate regions on almost every continent. Some species are: Anemone x hybrida, Anemone narcissiflora, Anemone fulgens, Anemone nemorosa, Anemone ranunculoides, Anemone hepatica, Anemone coronaria, Anemone pulsatilla, Anemone sylvestris, Anemone trifolia.

Common name: Japanese anemone. Scientific synonym: Anemone hupehensis. This species is native to central China.

They are rhizomatous herbaceous plants that reach 1 meter in height. The deep green oval palmate leaves have toothed margins. The attractive white flowers have a yellow center. They bloom in summer and early fall.

They are used in flowerbeds, on edges, on slopes and in light undergrowth. They combine very well with plants of the genus Astilbe and Hosta. They are ideal for coastal gardens.

Anemone x hybrida prefers semi-shade exposure in regions with hot summers (Mediterranean climate) and full sun exposure in regions with cooler summers. They resist light frosts.

The soil can be normal, well-drained garden soil with coarse sand and plenty of organic matter.

Water regularly so that the substrate never dries out completely, but never puddle. In winter reduce watering. They do not resist drought.

Fertilize with compost in early spring.

Prune wilted flower stems in late fall.

They can be attacked by snails and slugs and by fungi on the leaves.

They are propagated by root cuttings in winter and by division in spring.
