If you're looking for a plant to brighten up a dark corner from August to October, then you might want to consider Anemone x hybrida 'Honorine Jobert.'

Quick facts

anemone_honorine_jobert_plant_of_the_month

Shoots start to emerge in spring, followed by round, stately buds in the summer above an increasing expanse of green foliage. Flowers open in late summer, with a neat circle of golden-yellow stamens set around a green centre, showing off their elegant white petals to perfection.

 

Anemones have aquired a reputation for being invasive. However if they are planted in cool, fertile soil in partial shade they are less likely to run riot in search of more favourable conditions. Any division of plants should be done in the early spring as they dislike being moved.

 

A. x hybrida 'Honorine Jobert' is a dainty flower and like other Japanese anenomes is useful for filling in gaps in borders. Huge snowdrifts of anemones look spectatular and can be interspersed with Verbena bonariensis or Stipa pseudoichu. This particular plant has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit and is perfect as a late pollinator for bees and butterflies.
