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, pink, blue, purple, scarlet, rust, copper, and coral.
