An autumn-flowering anemone with large pink or white flowers. It is native to China and naturalized in Japan, and several cultivars have been developed.
- Anemone hupehensis variety japonica, family Ranunculaceae.
- Snow-white peonies come into bloom in May, and pale daylilies, white liatris, and white Japanese anemones take turns through the summer and fall.
- Further on in the season, pink Japanese anemones will colonise an area that suits them, ie. somewhere sunny but moist.
- Growing with the linaria is a pink Japanese anemone, also self-seeded or perhaps mistakenly imported with another plant.
