Rich pink buttercup flowers with golden centers rise above dark green foliage with violet undersides; windflowers are perfect for naturalizing, swaying gently in the wind and blooming at the end of the season

Ornamental Features

Lucky Charm Anemone is smothered in stunning hot pink buttercup flowers with gold eyes at the ends of the stems from late summer to mid fall. The flowers are excellent for cutting. Its attractive lobed leaves emerge deep purple in spring, turning dark green in color with curious violet undersides throughout the season. The fruit is not ornamentally significant. The deep purple stems can be quite attractive.

Landscape Attributes

Lucky Charm Anemone is a dense herbaceous perennial with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other garden plants with less refined foliage.

This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and is best cleaned up in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season. It is a good choice for attracting bees and butterflies to your yard. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Lucky Charm Anemone is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Mass Planting
  • General Garden Use
  • Naturalizing And Woodland Gardens
  • Container Planting

Planting & Growing

Lucky Charm Anemone will grow to be about 30 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 20 inches. Its foliage tends to remain dense right to the ground, not requiring facer plants in front. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years.

This plant does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder microclimates. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid. It can be propagated by division; however, as a cultivated variety, be aware that it may be subject to certain restrictions or prohibitions on propagation.

Lucky Charm Anemone is a fine choice for the garden, but it is also a good selection for planting in outdoor pots and containers. With its upright habit of growth, it is best suited for use as a 'thriller' in the 'spiller-thriller-filler' container combination; plant it near the center of the pot, surrounded by smaller plants and those that spill over the edges. Note that when growing plants in outdoor containers and baskets, they may require more frequent waterings than they would in the yard or garden.
