Japanese/Chinese Anemone

My friend has these lovely flowers in her garden.

I’ve seen them in pink not in white.

The white is just beautiful.

Anemone hupehensis, Anemone hupehensis var. japonica, and Anemone × hybrida (commonly known as the Chinese anemone orJapanese anemone, thimbleweed, or windflower) are species of flowering herbaceous perennials in the Ranunculaceae family.

These plants thrive best in shady areas and under protection of larger plants, and in all but the hottest and the driest conditions in the United States.[3] They are especially sensitive to drought or overwatering.[4] They can be invasive or weedy in some areas,[5] throwing out suckers from the fibrous rootstock, to rapidly colonise an area. Once established they can be extremely difficult to eradicate.[6] On the other hand, they can take some time to become established.[7]
