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.

    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    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.
