Japanese anemone

paikkospaikkos Posts: 4
This is my Japanese anemone. It's a Honorine Jobert. 


It is 2 years in since I bought it. It is one of two. Neither have never flowered. It August and it looks like it's about to die.
It's in a sheltered spot, west facing and get a reasonable amount of sunshine. My soil is london clay. Any idea what I might do to salvage?
Thanks in advance.

    Shade and moisture is what they like best. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I wanted to say thanks. I moved the anemone to the north facing side of the garden and it's looking a lot happier, I even have a flower now!

    Oh that's great  :)
    Hope it continues to do well, They're pretty tough plants, and can sometimes take a wee while to settle in after moving them, but it'll appreciate a bit of shade. You can take dead leaves off too,  and that will help it's reserves of energy. 
    I still have a few flowers appearing on some of my taller ones  - lovely on a dull day  :)
