Bearing buttercup-like blooms with cotton-candy-pink petals and pineapple-yellow disks, September Windflower adds color, texture, and movement to any landscape or container. Producing showy, 2-to-3-inch flowers from the end of summer to September, this fall bloomer’s florets can be enjoyed outside in the backyard or inside in a lovely jade vase. Otherwise known as Anemone x 'September Charm', Eriocapitella hupehensis, syn. Anemone hupehensis, Chinese Anemone, Japanese Anemone, Japanese Thimble Flower, and Japanese Windflower, this herbaceous perennial grows to a maximum height and spread of 24 to 36 inches and is cold hardy in zones 5 to 8. Grouped in beds or borders with its pinkish blooms blowing in the wind, September Windflower will add grace to any yard. At the end of summer, when other gardeners are depressed because their blooming season has ended, you’ll be tickled pink because your next season has only just begun.

September Windflower is a vigorous, mounding perennial that originates from Asia. Since this plant is relatively disease tolerant and deer resistant, you won’t have to fret about its pink flowers failing to pirouette in the wind because they were ravaged the night before by sickness or scavengers. With its blushing blooms on narrow green stems, this low-maintenance plant provides color from spring until fall. 

September Windflower Care

September Windflower prefers partial shade and moderate temperatures. Find an eastern-facing location that has loamy, moist, slightly acidic, well-draining soil. Add peat moss/coco coir and a little sand to improve drainage if needed. Plant this herbaceous perennial in the spring to give it time to establish over the summer. Having moderate watering needs, supply this vigorous grower with approximately one inch of water per week. Feed this low-maintenance perennial annually during the spring with a balanced (10-10-10) fertilizer.

Deadhead spent flowers throughout the blooming season to encourage the ongoing production of flowers. Trim any dead, diseased, or damaged leaves and stems. After the first heavy frost, cut back September Windflower to prepare it for the winter.

September Windflower Spacing

September Windflower grows well in beds and borders. Space plants at least 20 inches apart for group plantings. Possible companion plants include ferns, hostas, tickseed, and violas. Thriving in containers as well, this beautiful showy perennial shines as a thriller in a thriller-spiller-filler combination.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
