Höstanemon - Anemone hupehensis, Anemone hupehensis var. japonica, and Anemone × hybrida are species of flowering herbaceous perennials in the Ranunculaceae family. Anemone × hybrida is a hybrid of Anemone hupehensis var. japonica and Anemone vitifolia. Wikipedia Scientific name: Anemone hupehensis
Commonly known as Japanese anemones — they actually come from China — the fall blooming anemones found in our gardens are usually hybrids of these three Asian species: A. hupehensis, A. tomentosa, and A. vitifolia. Anemones are often known as windflowers, because the genus name was derived from the Greek word for wind, anemos. The appellation is perfectly understandable once you see a anemone swaying gracefully in the wind on its tall bloom stalk.
