As the name suggests 'Hadspen Abundance' is very free-flowering and keeps on producing masses of cup-shaped, deep pink semi-double flowers with reddish-pink outer petals from July through to September. A fabulous plant for adding late summer colour to the garden this anemone will also grow in sun or shade. The leaves are semi-evergreen and deeply cut and bring interesting texture to a herbaceous border. It is clump-forming and looks good with most late-flowering plants especially if it is allowed to spread gently among perennials and shrubs.

  • Garden care: Cut back the stalks after the flowers have faded and tidy up old dead leaves in March then mulch well.  Avoid moving the plant since it resents disturbance. Where necessary lift and divide congested clumps in autumn or early spring.
