Anemone x hybrida 'Honorine Jobert'

Plant details

Japanese anemones give borders a welcome boost in late summer and early autumn. Anemone x hybrida 'Honorine Jobert' is a particularly choice variety, bearing white, single flowers, tinged with pink on the underside of the petals. It's perfect for brighting up a shady corner in a large container, and also makes a pretty autumn focal point in the herbaceous border.

For best results grow Anemone x hybrida 'Honorine Jobert' in moist but well-drained soil in partial shade. To propagate, divide clumps in early spring or autumn. Mulch each year with organic matter such as well-rotted manure.

My white Japanese anemone is grown in a heavy clay soil in North Norfolk and grows like a weed, embracing all other plants within several yards. For the past 3 years I thought I had dug the whole lot up only for it to return, with even more determination the following year. Unfortunately, I believe, a lot of it,s roots are now entwined within the roots of a slow growing conifer which I don,t want to disturb. I dread to think what it would do if I mulched or fed it!!


I grow the Honorine Jobert japanese anemone and also a pink one
I find the pink one is more vigorous and is swamping the white one
also the pink is taking over and spreading.

I grow on a sandy slightly acidic soil.

How can I control them without destroying them, can anyone tell me?
