Billowing blooms on upright stems make for an effortlessly attractive airy cloud-like appeal in a mixed border. Flowering from late summer onwards, Japanese Anemones pick up the slack in your summer borders and carry the season of interest seamlessly into autumn. One of the best things about these plants, also known as Windflowers, is that they are a relatively unfussy, fully hardy perennial and don’t require much attention to do really well. They’ll grow in shade or sun, so whatever space you have available for them, they’ll fill the gap perfectly. They may take a little while to establish and grow accustomed to their space, but once they get settled these bee-friendly flowers are an absolute delight!
