Japanese anemone (Anemone × hybrida 'Margarete')
ah-NEM-oh-nee ex HY-brid-ah
Genus:  Anemone

This beautiful, medium pink, semi-double-flowered anemone has exceptionally large blooms from mid- to late-September through October on stems 28 to 32 inches tall.

Care: 

Anemones thrive in light to partial shade but will tolerate full sun, as long as there is sufficient moisture. Site plants in moist, humus-rich soil, but avoid overly wet conditions. Apply mulch annually in northern regions.

Propagation: 

 Divide plants in early spring or propagate by root cuttings in late fall or early spring.

Problems: 

 Japanese beetles and black blister beetles can be a problem, but neither is life-threatening. Foliar nematode damage, which is hard to recognize, will cause plants to slowly decline.
