Do not be fooled by the recommended light requirements unless you live in Alaska. In zone 5B this plant BURNS to a crisp in any afternoon sun. I've moved it twice in the 2 years that I've had it. The local botanical garden recommends partial shade to shade for this plant where it performs like a rock star! Love, love, love the plant, but please put it in some shade!

Japanese anenomes are easy to grow when properly sited. In cooler climates, they can be grown in full sun if a consistant supply of moisture is available. In warmer zones, they need protection from the hot, midday sun; dappled shade is ideal. Plant them in rich, loose, well-drained soil. Dry or excessively wet soil and windy conditions are a sure downfall of this plant.
This perennial spreads by means of creeping rhizomes, and new plants may appear near the original clump in the spring. They are easily transplanted if they show up where they are not wanted. This should be done in the spring. Make sure to provide a heavy mulch in the fall the first two seasons to prevent frost heaving.
Deer and rabbits typically don't bother this plant and it has no serious pest or disease issues.'Curtain Call Pink' Anemone hybrid USPPAF
