Scientific name: Anemone hupehensis
Considered as the stars of the autumn boarder.
According to Greek mythology, the Anemone flower came from the tears and blood of a Goddess, Aphrodite, and her murdered human lover, Adonis. In ancient Chinese and Egyptian culture, Anemone was a symbol of illness due to its colour. The Japanese associate the flower with bad luck.
A common name for the anemone is the “wind-flower,” which comes from the Greek word “Anemoi,” meaning winds. Also, the name comes from the fact that the wind can blow away its delicate petals.
