J is for Japanese Anemone

The term Japanese anemone is misleading.  Anemone hupehensis is actually a native of  Hupeh province in eastern China, but it was grown in Japanese gardens for centuries, hence the confusion. Japanese Anemone are herbaceous perennials with fibrous, rhizomatous or tuberous rootstocks, palmately lobed leaves and saucer-shaped, usually 5-petalled flowers.  They flower in late-summer or autumn, producing simple saucers in white and various shades of pink.

  1. White and various shades of pink–what a beautiful bouquet they’d make. I like the fuchsia or hot pink ones in the photo the best.
