Japanese Anemone are outstanding plants for the late summer and fall garden featuring lovely poppy-like flowers. This selection is from the Pretty Lady™ series and features large, double light-pink flowers up to 2″ across over a compact habit unlike other hupehensis varieties. Plants prefer a rich, moist soil and will not tolerate long periods of dryness. In very warm climates provide more shade. Superb for cutting.
