Anemone Robustissima Description
Anemone Robustissima is a charming shade loving perennial for the late summer-fall garden.
This fall flowering Japanese Anemone is hardy & robust spreading vigorously while providing a reliable late summer display of color.
Slightly cup shaped pink flowers begin in August and put on a spectacular show when summer plants are fading. Blooms can last well up to 2 months and enjoyed as a cut flower.
What is an appealing feature is the foliage. Glossy, green grapelike foliage appear early in the season-filling in gaps in the garden until tall branching stems with soft pink flowers appear later in the summer.
Anemone Robustissima does best in partial shade and evenly moist setting. It is not troubled by diseases.
Anemones make a wonderful cut flower and make long lasting bouquets with Sedum, Perovskia and Roses.
Delightful in groupings planted between bold Hostas, colorful Heucheras, spring flowering Hellebore, Hydrangeas.

Ideas and How-to's
Recommended for You:
Soil: Moist/Well Drained/Humus. Is salt tolerant.
Light: Full Sun or Partial Shade
Water: Needs regular watering - weekly, or more often in extreme heat. Do not let dry out between watering.
Spacing: Plant 2- 3 feet apart. Some protection from winds is advised.
Fertilizing: Needs little, though a light scattering of slow release fertilizer such as Osmocote, can be beneficial in spring as plants emerge.
Winterizing: Can add a covering of winter mulch (leaves) in colder areas. Remove in spring before plants emerge.
Maintenance & Pruning: Spreads by stolons and can be aggressive. Divide every few years in spring, by digging and moving emerging plant clumps.
