I have a September Charm anemone which I moved from our old house and replanted in full sun next to a short wall. It really doesn't look happy!! It seems to wilt a lot! Any advice? I know they don't really like being moved but do I need to move it somewhere less hot and dry?

    I always thought they preferred a shady spot

    Not a plant for full sun.

    Mine is in almost full shade and it was wilting yesterday.  A couple of buckets full of water improved things 

    but you can see this morning how a couple of hours of yesterday’s sun scorched the blooms. I shall have to deadhead them again today.

    Thanks everyone! I had a suspicion that the garden centre label was not correct re the position! I will think about where to re house it!
  • Even the rhs website says full sun to part shade- I am coming here first in the future! Thanks all

    I've many of these, planted just before last Christmas. I have to water them a lot or the flower stems wilt. I thought that it was because they hadn't become established. 
  • I think it’s also often said that anemone do not transplant well either

    In damp conditions they can cope with quite a bit of sun, but they do best in shade.

    I've transplanted several and never had a problem with them adapting. It will come down to suitable climate and conditions though.
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
