Buy Anemone hupehensis 'Hadspen Abundance' Japanese anemone: Masses of deep pink flowers in late summer

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, fertile, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    As the name suggests, Hadspen Abundance is very free-flowering and keeps on producing masses of cup-shaped, deep pink, semi-double flowers with reddish-pink outer petals from July through to September. A fabulous plant for adding late summer colour to the garden, this anemone will also grow in sun or shade. The leaves are semi-evergreen and deeply cut and bring interesting texture to a herbaceous border. It is clump-forming and looks good with most late-flowering plants, especially if it is allowed to spread gently among perennials and shrubs.

  • Garden care: Cut back the stalks after after the flowers have faded, and tidy up old dead leaves in March, then mulch well.  Avoid moving the plant since it resents disturbance. Where necessary lift and divide congested clumps in autumn or early spring.

    I have a very similar NE facing garden to Josee who asked a question here. I also love the shady pink design and adapted it slightly to suit my space. However, my question is about the Anemone Hadspen Abundance. It's planted in partial shade with sun for some of the time. It's in humus rich soil but although the leaves look healthy enough, it's sent up no flower shoots at all. This is its first year in my garden, so I don't know whether it's just settling in and will bloom next year, or whether, in fact it actually needs more sun (or less!). (The clematis "Freckles" which is planted near it is blooming away now although it's supposed to flower in February and the rose "Princess Alexandra of Kent" which is also near the Anemone is still throwing up buds and blooming happily - I tell you this so as to give an indication that other plants are doing both well - and strangely!). Please tell me if you think I should a) move it or b) wait until next year to see what it will do?

    Hello there This anemone will take partial shade so in theory as long as it isn't deep shade it should eventually, given the right conditions flower. It is still a young plant settling into your garden so I wouldn't be too concerned that it hasn't flowered in the first year, - it is more likely to be concentrating on root growth and settling in that producing flowers. I would wait until next year and if you still are not getting flowers then maybe it is not in the right position and should be moved. Hope this helps

    Can you plant these in a large container or should they be in the ground - I have a small courtyard garden and have just bought one of these

    Hello there You could try and grow this plant in pot, but because it grows to approx 1.5m tall it may need staking to stop the stems bending over and breaking. Also it does need a moist, fertile, humus-rich soil so will need to be kept well watered and not allowed to dry out. Hope this helps

    Should one cut back the anemone stalks after they have finished flowering, and if so to what size? Thanks

    Hello there Yes you can cut the stalks right back once the flowers have finished. Hope this helps

    Help with plants for N/East facing garden Hi, I have a little problem choosing some plants....... I really like the look and size of the 'Shady Pink' pre-designed corner planting plan, but our problem is that we have a north east facing garden, so we get no sun at all in the winter, and direct sun for only half a day on either side of the garden during the summer. Would this planting plan be suitable for that level of shade? We are actually are buying plants for the entire garden, so we'd need about 6 new shrubs, and maybe a small tree (we were thinking about the Prunus Amanogawa). Could you please help us with a few shrubs that would do well in these conditions? For perennials, we have been recommended; - Geranium Johnson's Blue, Kniphofia, Crocosmia, and Helleborus foetidus. Are these suitable? Many many thanks! Regards, Josee

    Josee Mallet

    Hello Josee, It is always difficult to give a definitive answer to the shade issue, but looking at the Shady Pink border, the most shade tolerant plants include Anemone hupehensis Hadspen Abundance, Thalictrum aquilegiifolium and Dryopteris erythrosora. If you click on the following link it will take you to all our shade-loving shrubs http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/shrubs/plcid.1/vid.11/ and for the shade -loving perennials http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/perennials/plcid.2/vid.11/ Of the plants you have listed, the Prunus, Helleborus foetidus, Kniphofia and Crocosmia will be OK as long as there is more sun than shade. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor
