Anemone Whirlwind Japanese Anemone Perennial 9cm pot
'Whirlwind' is one of the most beautiful plants for late summer and early autumn. This Japanese anemone makes clumps of large dark divided, vine-line leaves and pure white flowers with contrasting yellow stamens.
Garden care: Cut back the stalks after the flowers have faded. Tidy up old dead leaves in March. Apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring. Avoid moving the plant since it resents disturbance. Where necessary lift and divide congested clumps in early spring.
