Anemones belong to the family Ranunculaceae. They are also called “wind flowers”. Anemones have this nickname because the word “anemone” derives from the Greek term anemos, meaning “winds”. These flowers have a wonderful diversity of forms and colors. They come in single- and double-bloomed forms with five or six petals each. They offer up a rainbow of blossoms, including in hues of white, yellow, silver-pink, rose, blue, purple, scarlet, rust, copper, and coral.
