Japanese Anemones are great for adding colour to the garden late in the season when other plants are starting to fade. The dainty flowers dance in the breeze, hence the common name, Windflower. Anemone ‘Elfin Swan’ bears beautiful crisp white flowers. The back of each petal has a pale lilac-blue tint and as the flowers flutter in the breeze, both colours can be seen. The deep green leaves are serrated and have a slightly rough texture. Great for planting in beds, borders and containers where the nectar-rich flowers will attract bees and a host of other wildlife.

Planting Conditions

Japanese Anemones don’t mind sun or partial shade and are easy to grow provided they have a rich, evenly moist, well-drained soil. When planting, add garden compost or aged manure to the soil and do not let it dry out, especially during summer months.

Watering & Feeding

Water well during the first season until established, especially if growing in a container or sunnier part of the garden. Keep watering in the winter to a minimum as Anemone dislike excessive winter wet.

General Care

In spring they appreciate a mulch of organic matter (such as garden compost) over the surrounding soil, but be careful not to mulch too close to the stem as it may cause rotting. Once the flowers have faded cut back the flower stems to ground level in autumn and remove any old foliage in March. Once established they spread fairly rapidly, so lifting every three years and splitting the root of the plant will help to contain it and provide you with plants for other areas of the garden.
