Japanese windflowers (Anemone x hybrida) are hardy perennials which grow to about 1m (3′) tall. The flowers come as singles or doubles in a wide range of colours including white, pink and rosy red with golden centres. They die down in winter, when they can be divided up and spread throughout the garden.
Climate: Best south from Brisbane and Perth. They need protection from hot sun and drying winds in summer.
