Autumn Flowers – Japanese Anemones

Autumn flowers are a welcome sight in any garden and provide a strong splash of colour as the days become greyer. Anemome x hybrida ‘Honorine Jobert’ is my favourite choice for the garden now and are looking fantastic in my Hitchin garden.

It stands about a metre tall making a strong statement and has masses of elegant white flowers on long wiry stems. It works well in semi-shaded areas or under deciduous trees where the white flowers can really light up.  I also think they work well when partnered with tall grasses where they will move and sway in the wind together.

A big plus for me is their long flowering season from August to October as well as their dark green leaves which are semi evergreen. Once established you can easily divide them in the Spring and move them to another area in your garden.

If you’re more of a pink person then try planting ‘Konigin Charlotte’ or ‘September Charm’ instead. Equally beautiful and great for Autumn colour!
