Agree. We have planted them a few times over the years and they have never re-appeared after the first  flowering. They need a real good summer baking in well drained sandy soil in full sun.

Then not white flies per se. Sounds like they could either be one of the scale insects or possibly a fungus.

As I said a close up image of them would help us help you.

Try scraping one off. If it is like thin cotton wool with a black 'thing' in the centre then it is  scale.

Watch out for the milky sap when you pull it out. It can cause problems for people who are sensitive to it.

Japanese Anenomes

Well, weed killer does not, that's for sure. Just discovered a new set of growth on one which has been treated with Glyphosate for the last 5 years. Must have had a gallon of the undiluted stuff on it in that time.

How big are these white flies? Do they leave the plant in a cloud when the shrub us shaken. Or are they biggish and stay put?

Treatment would be different depending on  which.

And if the dog urine does kill the Anemone, please let us know so I can borrow a dog so it can kill the this awful thug of a plant, as weed killer has little effect.

Rhus Japonica ( I think )

We must have been very lucky 18 years ago. We had to remove one which was attacking the drains. I dug down and got out every scrap of root which I could find and that did the trick. No suckers, nothing since

 

Plant or weed?
