Anemone x hybrida ‘Honorine Jobert’ is an herbaceous perennial in the buttercup family and is a cross between Anemone hupehensis from China and Anemone vitifolia from Nepal. This tall, woody-based perennial grows to a height of 1 m. The leaves have three leaflets and its single, white, open-faced flower is 40–60 mm across, with 5-6 white sepals long and a center ring golden yellow stamens. It flowers profusely during late summer and early autumn. These plants thrive best in shady areas and under protection of larger plants. They are especially sensitive to drought or over watering. Once established, the suckering shoots will spread and they can be invasive or weedy in some areas, although they can take some time to become established.
