- The best time to plant autumn anemones is spring
The soil should be well drained and rich in nutrients. It should be carefully chopped regularly so that the surface remains weed-free and does not become too compact. When chopping, be careful not to damage the roots and especially the small runners.
Never plant under conifers
The soil under conifers has a very low pH. By dropping needles, the soil is also acidified. Autumn anemones cannot develop properly.
Maintain autumn anemones in the shrub bed or as a single perennial?
If you want to plant autumn anemones in your perennial bed, you should choose varieties of the Anemone tomentosa. The autumn anemones get along better with half-sided shading.
On the other hand, descendants of the Anemone hupehensis grow better than solitary plants. Plant them in a place where the perennial receives light from all sides. This variety does particularly well on fences.
Tips & Tricks
In order to reach their full height, autumn anemones should stand in one location for at least two years. Only then are they really hardy and no longer need winter protection.
