Fashionably late Japanese anemones! Our Plant of the Month is the Japanese anemone. They have been waiting for their turn in the garden and now their time has come to burst into bloom. These seasonal stunners are lovely in late summer and add interest to your autumn displays by filling gardens with colour. In fact they can keep the colour going well into winter.
Tall and bold, the simple flowers in shades from pink to white really celebrate the season. It comes in single and double flowers, adds height and colour to the back of the border, and will reliably flower every year. It’s also a great source of late season nectar for bees.
The Japanese anemone thrives in light to partial shade but will tolerate full sun, as long as there is sufficient moisture. It likes rich, moist soil, so don’t skimp on the compost to give it the best start. Add a generous mulch to help retain moisture and keep watered until it’s established. There are some absolutely gorgeous varieties to choose from and don't forget that Garsons Card Member's receive 20% off Plant of the Month ranges.
