Anemone hupehensis var japonica Pamina (Japanese Anemone)
Eyecatching large deep pink, semi-double cup shaped flowers emerge from July onwards held on strong wiry stems atop intricate and deeply serrated deep green mounds of foliage. This is a fantastic plant for some valuable later season colour. Japanese Anemones are versatile and tough making them a must have for herbaceous borders, they are tough enough to be planted amongst larger shrubs in sun or partial shade but without being invasive.
As a rough guide planting Anemone Pamina as ground cover – 4 plants per square metre is adequate with a little patience, 6 will give better coverage and 9-12 will make a weed supressing carpet very quickly.
