Anemone hupehensis var. japonica 'Prinz Heinrich'

Prinz Heinrich Japanese anemone is excellent for late summer to early fall color. It grows best in part shade or area protected from late afternoon sun and winds. It prefers fertile, consistently moist soil that is neutral to slightly alkaline with good drainage. In full sun and dry conditions, the foliage will often become burned; avoid wet soils, particularly in winter. In too much shade the flower stems tend to flop.
Foliage is dark green, softly pubescent beneath, and 3-parted. Flowers are semi-double, rosepink, with narrow overlapping tepals surrounding a central cluster of golden-yellow stamens. Flowers are produced on long, upright, wiry but graceful branching flower stems well above the foliage. The plant grows about 28 inches high and spreads by rhizomes.
Prinz Heinrich can be planted in perennial borders, woodland areas and are best grouped together in masses. It is a great plant for pollinators and attracts butterflies to the garden. It has no serious insect or disease problems though occasional pests can occur.
