In this post I share the pollinator friendly and super easy to grow Japanese Anemone. You will find a video, images and of course my thoughts on this perennial.
Japanese Anemone Windflower Video
The video on this post and image share are long anticipated. I am finally taking this off my list to write about on the website. Unfortunately, I can’t take credit for growing these from seed or bareroot because they were in the garden. Surrounded by beautiful hostas and a few new additions to this part sun garden the bees zoom around enjoying the flowers. Check out the video that shows how this plant makes the space sing in late summer to autumn.
This video is a part of my Bren Haas Channel. If you are having issues viewing this please reach out to me at any time on my site.
About The Japanese Anemone Windflower
A few years back I tried growing a few new varieties of anemone and they didn’t survive the winter. The ones in my hardiness zone 5b garden are definitely Anemone tomentosa Robustissima I found on Bluestone Perennial website. The plants I have actually spread over the last few years after we pruned the shade tree back away from this space. The plant gets a nice later afternoon sun and morning sun. Below are a few growing facts about this plant:
- Rated for zone 4-8
- Sun to part sun
- Normal, clay to acidic soil
- Pink flowers from late summer to early autumn
- Pollinator friendly
- Grows to about 3-4 feet tall
All of these are reasons I highly recommend adding this plant to your home garden. Be sure to check out other perennials grown in this home garden space on my website.

Oh these are so, so beautiful Bren! I am trying again this year for mine. I think last year they got too much sun and dried out. I bought more this year and tried a different spot with plenty of water. I had hoped they would have bloomed for me this year but I don’t think they will. Maybe next year. I hope mine get as pretty as yours!
