Japanese Anemone Honorine Jobert

November 3, 2013 – 12:04 pm

The Japanese Anemone Honorine Jobert is often described as the best white variety available, I have to say it is quite spectacular.

We have four of these plants in the back garden and like so many of our other plants, they have been tucked in between other perennials in such a fashion, where they do flower every year, but oh how they would clump up more given the room.

Well anyway find the right spot for this one bearing in mind Japanese Anemones dislike being moved after becoming established, generally just sets them back a bit. Homorine Jobert is particularly good for lighting up a dark corner of the garden and is highly recommended as a good performing late Summer/Autumn flowering perennial.

As you can see the pictures which I have attached do indeed show sparse flowering and although they did go on to give a better show than this I never did catch it on the camera, well I would say that wouldn’t I, just wait I’ll show you!

Mulch well with rotted garden compost in Spring The fine qualities of this plant have been rewarded with the prestigious award of garden merit from the RHS.

Hardiness – Fully Hardy

Position – Partial shade. Free draining soil

Height – 90/120cm 3/4ft

If you prefer a bit of colour, the pale pink flowers of Anemone hupehensis ‘September Charm’ may just be what you are looking for.

Flowering from late Summer through till Autumn, I just would not be without the Japanese Anemones in the garden.

September Charm normally grows to around three feet in height. In our garden the height is more often than not, four feet plus, perhaps this is due to the cooler growing conditions in Aberdeen.

Japanese Anemones tolerate most soils with a preference for humus rich and free draining. Apply a good dressing of garden compost in Autumn or Spring.

Although my blog is really all about how plants perform in the North East of Scotland, in the past year I have tried to personalise it a little by adding a secondary subject. I don’t think that I will ever run out of what to add in the first category, as it isn’t just about current plants in the garden but also about those which we have grown in the past and also others which I may have photographed in other parts of the city which I know to be fully hardy here in Aberdeen. However even after a long break I felt I would return so refreshed that I would have plenty to talk about regarding this secondary subject. Well its not so easy so I guess I will have to get my thinking cap on.

Day 3 (cont)

I think these things as Yosif worked his long, broad strokes: Should it be today? Should I knick his throat as we stroll through the flowers, watch him fall like a bewitched prince among the tall irises and the Japanese anemones? Or should I kiss him, nip playfully at his eager lips; open a tiny wound so he might receive a poisonous relief to his constant burning? Let him slide gently down into the twilit lake of the Tuileries. Yes, I like the sound of that. It is poetry. It will be a consummation of sublime romance.
"Ah, Inge!" I finished the young sheikh with a combination of subtle moves guaranteed to maximize his pleasure, and he fell back on the seat
