Size 4'
Light sun-part shade

Pink upright-growing cultivar of Japanese anemone. We acquired our specimen after years of growing the white 'Andrea Atkinson'. The pink is a nice change of pace (I still like the white forms a lot too!). Online photos of 'Prince Henry' tend to feature flowers that are much fuller, so I'm not entirely sure if our plant is correctly named. To be honest, I think I like the plainer, flatter appearance of ours better. And it certainly puts on an explosive flower show in the late garden.

Growing ever bigger, it gets impressively backlit by late-afternoon sun in mid-September

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
