Anemone 'Frilly Knickers'
This Japanese anemone or 'Windflower' is a new introduction, bringing layer on layer of ruffled, pale violet petals to add colour to late summer and autumn. Attractive to bees and other pollinators.
Very hardy and easy to grow in patio containers or plant into any average garden soil, avoiding wet areas. This plant dies down in winter to regrow in spring.
Keep well watered until firmly established, feed with a good liquid fertiliser every two weeks in the flowering season.
Soak plant thoroughly in its pot before planting, dig hole large enough to comfortably accommodate the root ball. Ensure the surrounding soil and the top of the root ball are at the same level. Fill around the root ball with soil mixed with good planting compost and a suitable fertiliser. Firm well and water generously.
