Flower of the Month: April

Anemone

Anemone has been one of our favorite flowers this spring.  The contrast of color offers an exciting pop to any arrangement.  Anemone flowers, also known as Windflowers, come in a variety of both natural and tinted colors.  Legend has it that the Greek goddess Aphrodite’s tears gave life to anemones as she wept in mourning the death of the god Adonis.  Thus linking anemones with anticipation, and are thought to close their petals as a signal that rain is coming.

Anemones are in season from October through May their peak season is in spring. They are available in red, pink, hot pink/magenta, purple, blue, white with green centers and white with black centers.
