Japanese Anemone 'September Charm' Characteristics

'September Charm' are mound forming perennials that are dotted with small pink flowers. When planted in the correct location and given proper care, they can make low maintenance and attractive additions. The soils should not be allowed to dry out, so plant in a damp woodland location or with a thick layer of mulch is best. However, poorly drained soils may cause root rot. Mulch can also help to protect the roots in the winter. Protection from wind and afternoon sun may be appreciated. They spread at the root and may grow outwards over time. Additional propagation can be done through plant division or root cuttings.

There are rarely any serious disease or insect issues that plague 'September Charm'. Japanese beetles, caterpillars, and slugs may snack on the leaves. Mildews and molds may occur in damp areas. When the plant reaches it's full height, some stalk support may be required.
