Japanese anemones give borders a welcome boost in late summer and early autumn. 'Honorine Jobert' is a particularly choice variety with white, single flowers, tinged with pink on the underside of the petals. Its fine qualities have won it the prestigious Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society. It enjoys well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. Mulch around the plants each year, and be prepared to lift and divide clumps if they spread beyond their bounds.
