I need to hurry and decide....please help.....molly

It sure isn't going to live well or long indoors, so I'd plant out ASAP. It needs shade or at least part shade and well-drained soil. IME, Japanese anemones tolerate some rather poor soil conditions as long as drainage is good. Better, fertile soil will allow for greater drought tolerance - poorer, drier soils will necessitate more routine watering.

fyi, some varieties of these anemones tend to spread rather vigorously.
