Anemone x ‘Alice Staub’
(Alice Staub Japanese Anemone)
There are a number of different selections of Japanese anemones, a misnomer as their parentage is really native to China but became popular in Japan, where they are now naturalized. Most fail to prosper in Gulf Coast gardens, but this form that the late Alice Staub received from Lynn Lowery has stood the test of time in her Houston garden, growing vigorously and flowering reliably in fall. We have a lush patch of this just north of John’s house, where it even receives a few hours of direct sun.
