This is one of my favorite plants, hardly no care, no cover up in winter, always flowering from July through ---- does not get invasive to the extent that where you have to worry. Best plant for the north.

This plant does run, but not very aggressively. It's best features are that it blooms in the late summer and fall and it blooms for WEEKS! It's a great change from mums and asters. The simple blooms are held high for great viewing and are very pretty.

Good name for this plant -- it is definitely robust. It forms a large bushy clump and sends stems with the flower buds above the foliage a good foot or so. The buds look like little pearls until they open into pretty pink flowers. Mine started blooming the last week in July, which is much earlier than the other variety of anemone I have (Pamina). This grows in a partially shaded area and doesn't receive much attention from me, except for occasional watering if it's extremely hot and hasn't rained for awhile. (Zone 4a)

Medium to Tall - Plant 16 in apart. - Soft pink single flowers. The most adaptable of the Japanese Anemones. The hardiest and the most tolerant of sun and drier conditions. 2" flowers on tall stems are freely and continuously produced. Likes moisture, and needs winter protection in the most northern states. Deer resistant. Good for cut flowers.

Ive had this plant for about four years. I moved it twice before finding the perfect spot for it. It has pritty pink flowers and will eventually spread to form a large mound. Does well in a somewhat shady position. It needs good drainage and ive found that mine needs a good deal of water in the summer when its particularly hot and dry here.

robust is right it will wander around. but drought tolerant. blooms profusely and as pretty a flower as the japanese hybrids.it grows right under an old dogwood and i never water them but theyre hemmed in by a retaining wall.
