The Anemone genus is part of theΒ RanunculaceaeΒ (buttercup) family. There are a little over 120 species of anemones in a wide range of colors.

AnemonesΒ are popular in gardens as individual species flower in the spring, summer, or fall, providing continual color.

The nameΒ “anemone”Β meansΒ “daughter of the wind.”Β The name was chosen to show that the winds that blow open the flower also blow away its dead petals.
