Anemone x hybrida 'Honorine Jobert'

Plant details

Japanese anemones give borders a welcome boost in late summer and early autumn. 'Honorine Jobert' is a particularly choice variety with white, single flowers, tinged with pink on the underside of the petals. Its fine qualities have won it the prestigious Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society. It enjoys well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. Mulch around the plants each year, and be prepared to lift and divide clumps if they spread beyond their bounds.

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?
