Artist's Description

These flowers grow in small patches, usually in wooded areas. They are often found on riverbanks.

The Manx name for this flower is “Lus-ny-geayee”, which means “Plant of Wind”.

There are two stories about this plant in Greek mythology. The first is that anemones grew where Aphrodite’s tears fell after Adonis was killed. The second is that Anemone was a nymph who was turned into a flower by the goddess Flora.
