A friend gave me a bouquet from the garden of the home she just moved into (MN, Zone 4), and included some of these sweet little flowers in it. It's tiny -- the flower itself is only 1-1/2 inches -- and before it opens up is almost a complete globe -- about the size of a pea. There are several little flower buds on each little stem. Assuming it's a perennial, but I could be wrong. Can anyone enlighten me? Thank you!

Perhaps a sun rose?

It looks like an anemone, perhaps Anemone hupehensis



Or 'September Charm' (which is in the database as A. hupenensis but I thought it was a hybrid):



Edited to say the RHS, Mobot and Fine Gardening all have the latter as Anemone x hybrida 'September Charm'.

I agree
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Yes, Japanese Anemone. They are perennial and spread like crazy but are also easy to transplant if you friend decides to share. Smiling

Thank you! Yes, I agree it's a Japanese anemone -- not sure which. I've never seen them before -- they were so lovely as an accent in the vase with the other flowers. I appreciate your responses! Thank You!
