About 120 species of flowering plants belong to the genus Anemone, which is part of the Ranunculaceae family and is endemic to the temperate regions of the world. The genus Anemone is sometimes expanded to include the closely related genera Pulsatilla ('Pasque flower') and Hepatica.

From the Greek ánemos (meaning "wind") and the feminine patronymic suffix -n, the name Anemn (meaning "daughter of the wind") is derived. Ovid's Metamorphoses says that Venus made the plant by mixing nectar with the blood of her lover, Adonis, who had been killed. The common name "windflower" is applied to all members of the genus, including A. nemorosa, the wood anemone.

Perennial anemones have leaves that are arranged in a rosette at the base and have long straight or bent leaf stems. Both simple and compound leaves can have undivided, pinnately divided, or lobed leaf blades. In terms of leaf edges, we can talk about whether they are toothed or entire.

Flowers with four to twenty-seven sepals may form singly, in cymes of two to nine flowers, or in umbels atop a crown of leaves or bracts. You can find sepals of varying colors. There is only one ovule per pistil. Even though most flowering plant species have nectaries, they don't have petals.

The fruits, which can be anything from ovoid to obovoid in shape, are achenes that are gathered in a tight cluster at the end of stalks of varying lengths; however, several species have sessile clusters at the stem's end. Some species' achenes also have feathery hairs attached to their beaked tips.

Many of these species are widely grown because they bring vibrant color to gardens from early spring to late fall. Many different varieties of plants have been chosen. Generally speaking, there are three categories of plants in gardening:

Species that bloom in the spring and are typically found in woods and alpine meadows are examples of tuberous or rhizomatous plants; examples are A. nemorosa and A. blanda.
species like A. coronaria that have tuberous roots that bloom in the spring and summer and thrive in hot, dry climates
species that bloom in the summer and fall, have fibrous roots and prefer damp dappled shade, like A. hupehensis

A. blanda is one of the most common late-spring bulbs, and its purple flowers are often part of a bouquet with flowers in other colors. Many additional spring-blooming plants belong to the genus, and two of the most beautiful are A. hortensis and A. fulgens, both of which have fewer split leaves and spectacular rosy-purple or crimson blooms. They both need the same care.

A. coronaria, also known as the poppy anemone, is a well-known species of summer anemone. It has a tuberous root system, divided leaves that resemble parsley, and tall flower stalks that bear large, showy flowers that resemble poppies. For the double-flowered types, a tuft of slender petals grows in the stamens' traditional location. It's a classic in the gardening world, and the double versions even have their own labeled variety.

In particular, the white Anemone hupehensis cultivar 'Honorine Joubert' is among the best of the hardy perennials that bloom in autumn; it thrives in sandy soil, grows to a height of 60–100 cm, and produces flowers for weeks on end. The native British A. nemorosa and A. apennina are just two examples of a group of dwarf species that are among the most stunning spring flowers for planting in forests and shaded regions.

Loamy soil that has been amended with well-rotted manure is ideal for growing anemones; the manure should be dug in just below the tubers. These can be planted in October and then again in January for a continuous crop. A thin layer of leaves or stable litter can shield the ones planted in the fall. They bloom in May and June and then need to be stored in a dry place until planting time once the leaves have matured. A bed of single varieties is a great addition to a flower garden because it gives you a lot of beautiful and sometimes spectacular spring flowers that bloom almost as early as snowdrops or crocuses and are easy to grow from seed. Anemones do best in filtered sunlight, but they can handle full sun if the harshest rays from the south are blocked. An ideal soil would have good drainage, be somewhat acidic, and be amended with compost.

Early in the morning, while it's still cool outside and the flowers are still closed, is the finest time to gather them for a vase arrangement. Put the blooms in water at room temperature and keep them out of the sun to help them open. When cared for properly, anemones make excellent cut flowers and will last for around nine days in a vase. Depending on the year, you can buy anemone flowers from a florist anytime between November and June.
