Wood Anemone

The wood anemone is a woodland plant usually with 5 petal-like sepals. The leaves are divided into between 3 to 5 leaflets. They are about one inch wide and the color can range from white to pink petals. The name anemone comes from the Greek god of the wind Anemos. Another Greek legend say that Venus was crying for her lost lover and everywhere her tears fell, an anemone grew.
