Buy Anemone × hybrida 'Honorine Jobert' Japanese anemone: Lights up the garden in late summer

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, fertile, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: August to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A fabulous plant for brightening up the garden in late summer, this anemone grows in sun or shade and has masses of elegant, cup-shaped, white flowers on tall, wiry stems from August to October. The leaves are vine-like, dark green, and semi-evergreen. These single flowered Japanese anemones are one of the plants traditionally associated with Japanese gardens, where they're grown against dark rocks or in the shade of trees. Best in partial shade, they are perfect for lighting up a dark corner of the garden, or at the back of a herbaceous border.

  • Garden care: Cut back the stalks after the flowers have faded, and tidy up old dead leaves in March. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring. Avoid moving the plant since it resents disturbance. Where necessary, lift and divide congested clumps in early spring.

Notes on Anemone × hybrida 'Honorine Jobert'

"The classic, crisp, clean-cut single white Japanese anemone, best grown rambling close to houses or walls, where the purity of its pristine yellow stamens can be admired at close quarters"

Lovely healthy plant

Bought this as a gift for a good friend after she admired my pink version. I first had trouble sourcing one, and eventually found this lovely specimen at Crocus around a year ago. My friend was visiting today so I asked her how it was doing. She was delighted to discover it had made it through the pretty extreme weather conditions we have had over the last month or so, and is right now showing growth ready for the season. She loved it last year when it was a relatively new plant too...gave flowers etc. So I really good buy.

Very reliable anemone

I have several of these in my garden and they are a very reliable choice. Can be slow to establish but once settled they do brilliantly. (I garden on heavy clay soil). Flower for months and the seed heads are attractive too.

A wonderfully versatile plant

Japanese anemones are such useful flowers. The crisp freshness of Honorine Jobert, as supplied by Crocus, creates a perfect foil for other late summer perennials. Like all Crocus products, they are very healthy plants and are delivered promptly and securely packaged.

I bought honorine jobert from you last August and it flowered until first frosts. However is it possible it has changed colour to pink? I have other varieties close by - Queen Charlotte for example but every one is now pink. Is this possible????

Nan

I have never heard of this happening, so I wonder if for some reason the 'Queen Charlotte' has spread and the 'Honorine Jobert' has not flourished.

Helen

I've tried several times to grow these. I'm planting them in a semi shaded border that in the summer gets the evening sun. They're fine when I plant them but don't come up the following year. Is there a best time of year to plant them?

SueM

These are usually quite robust, however they may not flourish if their roots are disturbed, or if they are not getting enough sun.

Helen

I planted out a number of Honorine J anemones in late summer last year. They flowered well and were lovely. In early spring, I removed the untidy old leaves, and gave them a good feed. My problem now is that the plants seem TOO happy!! - they are much bigger than I expected them to be. Huge amounts of foliage, getting very tall and wide, and eclipsing the smaller plants that are around them. Is it safe for me to give them a pretty hard trim back now, or will I sacrifice the flowers in the autumn? (I plan to lift and divide them next spring, and cut back hard once again.)

traceta77

Hello, I suspect if you cut them back now, it will be at the expense of this years flowers, so it is a bit of a dilemma. Also, as they resent root disturbance, they are best moved only if necessary and in early spring.

Helen

Hi, I'm wondering whether Japanese anemones would be suitable to grow in the bed (1m wide approx) against the house outside the front of the house. They would be in full sun. If yes, and I planted a line of them at the back, what other plants would go well in front of them? We have iron rich soil (north Oxfordshire). Thank you. ps. I am a novice gardener!

Nervous ninny

Hello, It sounds as though these would do very well in the position you describe, however I would be tempted not to plant anything with them - they have nice, low(ish) foliage and will be happier without the competition.

Helen

Hi, I want to order a whole lot of plants to plant up now in a front garden. Please can you advise if the following list is ok for planting up now. Verbena Bonarensis Japanese anenome Lavandula hidcote and grosso heuchera astrantia geranium johnson blue vinca "getrude Jekkl" salvia caradonna Many thanks Constance

Constance

Hello, Now is a great time to plant fully hardy plants (we do have the hardiness rating on all the plants we sell on the site). Scanning through your list though, the only one that is not fully hardy is the Verbena, so I would wait until spring to plant this out,unless you live in a milder part of the country, or have a sheltered garden.

Helen

The Anemonies are fully hardy and have been grown in their pots, so they can be planted out at any time of year as long as the soil isn't frozen solid. As we have had such bad weather The Anemonies are fully hardy and have been grown in their pots, so they can be planted out at any time of year as long as the soil isn't frozen solid. As we have had such bad weather though I would hold off on planting them until the weather warms up. In the meantime the plants can be kept outside against a warm, sunny, sheltered wall until you are ready to plant.

Crocus

Thanks for sending the Japanese Anemones, which we received yesterday. We have a query about the timing of planting, and how to store them, given the current weather. We live in Farnham, Surrey where the temperature is currently maxing it 5-6 degrees C during the day, but dips to -1 or -2 at night. Could you confirm if we should plant them out now, or wait until the temperature is above freezing at night?
