Anemone are perennial herbs, plants that grow from rhizomes, caudices, or tubers. Leaves grow from the base and can be simple, compound, or attached with a leaf stalk. Terminal inflorescences with two-to-nine-flowered cymes or umbels, or solitary flowers that depending on the species can be up to 60 centimeters tall. The flowers are bisexual and radially symmetric. The sepals are not persistent in fruit, and can be white, purple, blue, green, yellow, pink, or red. Fruits are achenes

The meaning of the anemone flower is “forsaken” and also “a dying hope”. The flower Anemone could also be used to signify anticipation.

The Anemone coronaria (“Kalanit” in Hebrew) is one of the best-known and beloved flowers in Israel. During the British Mandate of Palestine, British soldiers were nicknamed “Kalaniyot” for their red berrets.

The anemone is called the wind flower because it was believed that wind is what caused it to bloom.

In Ovid’s Metamorphoses (book X), Venus transforms the blood of her dead lover, Adonis, into an Anemone. One implication is that the blood-red petals are symbolic of her lost love because, as the verses conclude, they cling too loosely to the stem and are easily lost in the wind. In some versions of the myth, Venus’s tears cause the transformation
