Compact and vigorous, Anemone hupehensis ‘Pocahontas’ is a double-flowered Japanese Anemone that produces an abundance of gently cupped, double, bubblegum pink flowers adorned with a central tuft of golden-yellow stamens. The flowers are held upright on very strong stems that withstand rough weather conditions. They are followed by fluffy, creamy white, cotton-like seed heads which extend the garden interest well into late fall and winter. Low care and well-behaved, this late summer garden favorite deserves a spot in the garden, a container, or in a vase.

  • One of the longest-blooming perennials in the garden, it provides weeks of color, from mid-summer through early fall, when many other perennials are starting to fade.
  • This plant typically grows up to 12-18 in. tall (30-45 cm) and spreads to 18-24 in. (45-60 cm).
  • Mixes beautifully with ornamental grasses or any other perennial plants. Well suited for borders, cottage gardens, coastal gardens, or naturalistic areas such as prairies or meadows. Great in containers and perfect for small gardens!
  • Very attractive as cut flowers, it has good resistance to most insects and diseases. Attracts butterflies but is deer and rabbit resistant!
  • A full sun or part sun lover, it enjoys rich, humusy, evenly moist, well-drained soils. Do not let the soil dry out! Provide some wind protection. Add winter mulch in cool winter areas. This plant will happily naturalize to form colonies!
  • Salt tolerant
  • Eating may cause stomach upset and skin contact may cause mild irritation.

Native to China, Anemones have been cultivated in Japan for hundreds of years. Growing to 4 feet (120 cm), they produce single, semi-double or double blooms in shades of pink and white on slender, graceful stems in mid-late summer and early fall. Though they may appear delicate, these long-lived perennials can survive with minimal maintenance once they are established. Deer resistant, they are a popular choice for borders or as specimens in home gardens.
