This pretty, fully hardy genus is made up of about 120 different species of perennials that flower in spring, early summer or autumn. They come in shades of bright pink, red, purple, gentle cream, yellow and pink hues.

The well known Japanese Anemones – A. hupehensis, A. vitifolium and A. tomentosa – all originated in China but were found growing in Japan and so came to the west with the name A. japonica!

Both the common (windflower) and botanical names have origins Greek mythology – Anemone was a nymph turned into a flower left to the mercy of the north wind!
