A genus of around 120 species of perennial flowering plants native to temperate regions. Anemones are typically divided into three main groups, comprising spring-flowering species, tuberous Mediterranean and C. Asian species, and larger herbaceous species. Flowers tend to be saucer- or cup-shaped, each with a mass of stamens in the centre. Larger species are ideal for borders, while smaller species are best in woodland or rock gardens. Cultivation is dependent on the type of Anemone.
