Anemone Hybrida Queen Charlotte is a deciduous AGM-winning border perennial with fluffy pink flowers on long graceful stems. It’s a great choice for mixed borders and late summer colour.
Anemones are native to China but they’ve been cultivated in Japan for centuries hence the common name Japanese Anemone. Many varieties exist but Queen Charlotte, which is synonymous with its original name Anemone Hybrida Königin Charlotte, is one of the prettiest cultivars you can find.
It has dark green deeply lobed foliage and long elegant stems that move with the breeze. Topping its stems are cup-shaped, pale pink semi-double flowers with yellow centres and a fluffy ruffled look.
Its flowers emerge in late summer from architectural, spherical buds and bloom anytime from August to October. This brings a much-needed hit of colour and nectar source to dull and fading gardens. They’re very easy to look after, requiring barely any care once established.
