Peacock Anemone

Anemone pavonina


Anemone is spread all over the world, either native or cultivated, but it is basically located in the woodland and meadows of the northern and temperate regions. There are 6 species of anemone in Greece: Anemone apennina, A. coronaria, A. hortensis, A. nemorosa, A. pavonina and A. ranunculoides. A. pavonina is usually red with a white base resulting in a very impressive flower, but can be found with rosy or violet flowers. Anthers blue-eyed.


Meadows, olive groves, crops, forest clearings, uncultivated fields and borders of cultivated fields.


Etymology: Anemone, because its delicate stem is rocking at the slightest breath of the wind. (wind > anemos, άνεμος in Greek). [See the last pic on the effect of wind on the delicate flower]
