Fall-Blooming Anemones to Plant in Your Garden Now

Fall-Blooming Anemones to Plant in Your Garden Now
Close-up of Serenade Japanese Anemone flowers in front of yellow flowers.

In the garden's typically quiet time as summer's flowers fade, part-shade loving anemones come into bloom. With masses of refined and elegant pink or white flowers, these burst open atop the plant's willowy stems.

While there are lots of anemones from which to select, we chose these four. Each offers something unique that fulfills various gardening needs. From bigger blooms to super hardy to flowering groundcover, anemones are a fuss-free late season bloomer. (Late July to October depending on the cultivar.) These have romance to spare.

  • Blooms in early fall
  • Deer and rabbit resistant
  • Attracts butterflies
  • Thrive in part-shade
  • Fuss-free and easy to grow

Keep Anemones Happy:

  • Partial to full sun
  • Humus-rich, well-drained soils with constant moisture during growing season.
  • Shelter from harsh sun and wind.
  • Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system.
  • Remove spent flowers to prolong flowering.
  • Cut back to ground at the end of season.
