Anemone hupehensis.....we have a lot of "Japanese Anemones" in the Asian Collections
These are Chinese and descendants of plants that I moved there in 1992. They live near the middle of China Valley between the bend in the path and the dry streambed on the south end of the collection. This is a wonderful plant for fall. You can cut it or just enjoy it. Obviously it's a long lived perennial without many issues. I have seen anthracnose on the leaves in cold wet springs, but nothing serious.
