Growing Japanese Anemone from seed?

baxi74September 16, 2006

Has anyone had any luck growing japanese anemone(like honorine jobert) or Anemome tomentosa from seed? i've seen the seed for sale, but recommended propagation methods are usually division and cuttings. They are said to be so vigorous, but mine doesn't spread at all and the clump of september charm i bought off ebay doesn't look like it's gonna make it through the winter...

I think Honorine Jobert is a hybrid - Anemone x hybrida - so it would not come true from seed. If it's happy, it spreads by runners. Mine took a while to get established, but now has spread pretty nicely - there are several crowns, spaced by about a foot each in all directions from the parent plant.

If I were you, I'd give it a nice compost mulch, keep it watered well through the fall, cross my fingers, and swear off buying plants on ebay.

"...and swear off buying plants on ebay. "

Great suggestion.
There is no recourse if plants are damaged, dead or not true to the name.
It took me 3 years to grow Paeony mlokosewitchii untill it finally bloomed and to discover that it is a pink garden hybrid, not a yellow SPECIES I was looking for.

Hi Baxi,

Where did you find seeds for sale? I've been searching online and have only come up with ebay sellers.
