The Japanese anemone's name comes from the Greek word for "wind," and some other anemone species are called wind flowers. This perennial's strong-stemmed, showy, poppylike flowers can reach a height of four to five feet, in white, pink, or lavender. Each flower has five or more petallike sepals that enclose numerous golden stamens. The compound green leaves are about two feet tall and turn wine-red in autumn. Anemones are easily grown in fertile, moist soil with plenty of organic matter mixed in. They prefer full sun in northern gardens but will adjust to partial shade. They bloom late in summer and on into fall.
