Anemone hupehensis 'Red Riding Hood' (Fantasy Series)
Red Riding Hood is part of an outstanding new series of Anemones. Lots of thickly petalled, bright, single, magenta pink blooms are produced on strong stems, making them ideal for cut flowers. Fluffy, cream seed heads give interest in the winter months. This plant is hardy, but dies down in winter to regrow in spring.
Keep well watered until firmly established. Plant into any average garden soil, avoiding wet areas. Feed with a good liquid fertiliser every two weeks in the flowering season.
Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather. Feed in spring with a good, general fertiliser.
