|Anemone coronaria |
Common name: Poppy anemone
Anemone coronaria (poppy anemone), is a species of flowering plant in the genus Anemone, native to the Mediterranean region. It is flowering mid January to end of February.
Anemone coronaria is a herbaceous perennial plant growing to 20–40 cm tall (rarely to 60 cm), with a basal rosette of a few leaves, the leaves with three leaflets, each leaflet deeply lobed. The flowers are borne singly on a tall stem with a whorl of small leaves just below the flower; the flower is 3–8 cm diameter, with 5–8 red, white or blue petal-like tepals. There are mainly four color morphs, purple, white, red and magenta while there are some intermediate ones. I posted two more in WS.
