Scorched anemones

Amateur Gardening - - Ask Anne! -

Q What dam­aged the leaves on my Ja­panese anemones this year? Kath Mor­ley (via email)

A Ide­ally, Ja­panese anemones need to be grown in fer­tile, welldrained but mois­ture-re­ten­tive soil in par­tial shade. Your plant may well do bet­ter if it is some­where where it is more pro­tected from bright sun­shine in the mid­dle of the day.

The wind may also be part of the prob­lem as it can cause leaves to dry out very quickly, and di­rectly cause them to scorch.

Ja­panese anemones don’t like hot full sun and harsh winds
