Japanese Anemone: A Field Guide

Japanese anemones aren’t Japanese at all. The shallow, saucer-like flower got its name after European plant hunters discovered windflowers in Japan (where they had been imported and cultivated).

Today the autumn-blooming plant, one of more than 120 species of Anemone, has been renamed Anemone hupehensis (or Chinese anemone). Despite their delicate appearance, Japanese anemones can be hard to eradicate (and are considered invasive in Hawaii), so it’s wise to consider carefully where to plant them.
