- Herbaceous perennial
- USDA hardiness zones:
ëPrinz Heinrich (often sold in commerce as 'Prince Henry') is a vigorous, fibrous-rooted, mounding, Japanese anemone that typically grows to 2-3 tall and spreads by creeping rhizomes. Semi-double, deep rose flowers (2î diameter) with yellow center stamens appear on long, upright, wiry-but-graceful, branching stems over an attractive foliage mound of trifoliate dark green leaves. Lengthy September to October bloom period.
- Full sun to part shade
Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Best in part shade with protection from wind. Foliage tends to burn in hot, dry, sunny summer conditions. Prefers consistently moist, humusy soils with good drainage. Soils must not be allowed to dry out. Avoid wet, poorly-drained soils, however, particularly in winter. May be slow to establish, but naturalizes well in optimum growing conditions.
