Anemones make the garden come alive in vibrant red, white, pink, yellow, and purple shades. These flowers have a simple, daisy-like shape and lobed foliage. Some anemone varieties feature double flowers, similar to a frilly, oversized mum.
The family Ranunculaceae is a generous contributor to flower gardens. In addition to the genus Anemone, other members of the family include delphinium, clematis, and ranunculus. Anemones are often referred to as windflowers from the Greek word for wind "anemos."
