2016 Perennial Plant of the Year

You heard it here first: The Perennial Plant Association has named Anemone "Honorine Jobert" as Perennial Plant of 2016.

This year’s honoree is a 3- to 4-foot-tall, woody, white-bloomed perennial that prefers rich, evenly moist but well-drained soil and thrives in full sun to part shade. The plant blooms from August through October and spreads via underground rhizomes, with no serious insect or disease problems. Its carefree habit makes it best suited for cottage and woodland gardens.
