Japanese Anemone

This delicate-looking perennial is a reliable late-summer to mid-Autumn bloomer, producing masses of dainty white to pink to rose blooms rising above attractively lobed medium green foliage. Flowers may be single, double, or semi-double.

The term Japanese anemone is misleading, it is actually a native of Hupeh province in eastern China, but it was grown in Japanese gardens for centuries, hence the confusion.
Robert Fortune (1812-1880) introduced it into Europe in 1844, having apparently discovered it running between the tombstones in a Shanghai graveyard.
This one was spotted growing in a garden in Ramsgate, Kent
