Anemone 'Queen Charlotte'
Known fondly as ‘windflowers’, Japanese anemones are revered for their romantic free-flowing flowers borne on tall stems that sway gently in the breeze during late summer and autumn. Anemone 'Queen Charlotte' produces masses of large soft pink blooms that bring colour and charm through the cooler months, lighting up shaded areas that are often difficult to plant. The vine-like dark green foliage is also beautiful, forming soft mounds from which the tall self supporting stems protrude, holding the flowers well above the foliage. New growth appearing mid-late spring is useful to disguise dying foliage of spring bulbs. Plant in drifts under deciduous trees for maximum impact.
Plant in a semi-shaded or low-light position such as beneath deciduous trees. Suits coastal conditions and all soil types, apart from waterlogged. Used to best effect when left to multiply in large drifts. Cut back spent flower stems in late autumn and propagate by division in early spring.
