  • Description

  • Notes

'Margarete' is an anemone hybrid with deep, rosy-pink, double petals and bright yellow stamens. Foliage is a dark, glossy green and has three lobes. Plants grow between 2 and 3 feet tall and wide, with the flowers held on erect, wiry stems above the foliage. Blooms late summer into fall, and is lovely in perennial border or with shady shrubs and grasses.
Grow in well drained, loamy soils in part to full shade. Though it requires more moisture than A. tomentosa, the soil shouldn't be wet and does need to be well draining to avoid the crown rotting. Anemone are vigorous, fibrous-rooted perennials that spread by creeping rhizomes. Resistant to deer and rabbits, but attractive to butterflies. Japanese anemone cultivars are commonly sold as Anemone x hybrida or Anemone japonica.
