Anemone x hybrida 'Honorine Jobert' (Japanese Anemone) - A hardy, long-lived, semi-deciduous clumping perennial with graceful branching flower stems to 3 to 4 feet tall (occasionally even to 6'), spreading by rhizomes to 4 feet or more with grape-like dark green basal leaves that are lightly covered with fine hairs. The tall flower stalks produces clusters pure white flower that have bright yellow stamens and a blush of pink on the back-side of the petals; flowering is in late summer through fall. Along the coast they can grow in full sun/open shade; inland protect from hot direct sun. Deadhead as needed. Cut plants to the ground in early winter or after frost blackens the foliage. Hardy to <15 degrees F. Good for cut flowers. RHS Award of Garden Merit in 1993. An old garden hybrid discovered in the garden of Messier Jobert in Verdun, France in 1858 as a chance sport of A. x hybrida. M. Jobert propagated it and named it for his daughter, Honorine. The name Anemone comes from Greek mythology as Anemone was the daughter of the wind. Anemone x hybrida or Japanese anemones as they are commonly called, are all the result of crossing two or three species, A. hupehensis, A. vitifolium, and A. tomentosa. Ironically all of these actually come from China but were erroneously called Japanese anemones when brought into cultivation because of an early record of one plant from Japan.  This description is based on our research and observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We will also incorporate comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information about this plant, in particular if this information is contrary to what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Anemone 'Honorine Jobert'.
