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]
