Zhu Wei et al.

Parentage: ‘Zi Feng Yu’, open pollinated. First bloomed 2020, first propagated 2021. Early-Midseason blooming ANEMONE flowers are rose-purple, 10cm (3.9″) in diameter, upward facing, and average one per stem. Fragrance noted. Guard petals are cupped and frilled, and average 5cm (2″) in width. Flowers possess four moderately hairy, yellow-green carpels with rose-purple stigmas of normal anatomy. Petalodes display the same colors as petals of the outer rows. Seed fertility noted. Plants reach 87cm (34.25″) at maturity, and carry broadly cut, green foliage. Foliage at the time of emergence is green. Growth habit is upright, and mechanical support is unnecessary. Named for Jiang Nan, the region south of the Yangtze River where the cultivar has been grown with much success, along with the phrase ‘si wu’, which means that the central petals are filiform, and when the wind picks up, the flowers sway in the wind as if dancing.
