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.
