Anemone x hybrida 'Andrea Atkinson' and 'Honorine Jobert'
'Andrea Atkinson'

Common name Japanese windflower (white forms)
Family ranunculaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z4)
Flowers white (August-October)
Size 3'
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil

Bright white flowers with orange centers over attractive dark foliage keep the garden going in that difficult period in mid-to-late summer when there's not much to be excited about. What's more, they keep on going into fall, when they are positively the brightest thing growing in their corner of the side garden. The first type we grew was 'Andrea Atkinson'; more recently we've added the more well-known 'Honorine Jobert'. They are both fine perennials, in very similar ways; I haven't paid enough attention yet to tell how they differ from each other.

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