A lovely sight in the late summer or fall garden, Anemone hupehensis var. japonica 'Pamina' is a star performer featuring masses of double, deep rose, cup-shaped flowers, 2 in. wide (5 cm), forming lovely rosettes around a ring of golden stamens. Persisting for weeks, the eye-catching flowers of this Japanese Anemone are gracefully carried on dark, wiry stems above mounds of divided, vine-like, dark green foliage. Low care and well-behaved, this beauty is a wonderful naturalizer that is perfect for adding a splash of color to the late season garden.
- One of the longest-blooming perennials in the garden, it provides weeks of color, from late summer through fall, when many other perennials are starting to fade.
- Recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society, this plant typically grows up to 2-3 feet tall (60-90 cm) and spreads via rhizomes to 24-30 in. (60-75 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.
- Very attractive as cut flowers, it enjoys a 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.
