Can anyone help me identify this plant please. It is growing in an herbacious border.

    Looks like a Japanese anemone.

  • The plant is in the cottage garden of a house my son has just moved into. The border contains lots of traditional cottage plants such as geraniums foxgloves poppies alcamilla etc. but not sure about this one.
  • Thank you. My first thought was a Japanese anemone but have never had one so wasn't sure. I took this piece from the edge, the main part is much taller. Is it a rapidly spreading plant?

    They are lovely but i found that they were so invasive i had to pull them all out and it wasnt easy, with deep roots and all the little bits you miss start growing too.

    They flower late summer,mine are dotted among a shrub border.
    The whole truth is an instrument that can only be played by an expert.
  • Thanks to you all. They do appear to be a bit invasive growing much more rapidly than the other plants in there. I will try to keep them under control!!

    Christine, some types are more invasive than others.
