Canadian anemone Interesting Notes

The genus name Anemone is an ancient Greek and Latin corruption of the Semitic name for Adonis, from whose blood the red-flowered anemone is said to have sprung.

Meadow anemone was first described for science in 1768 by the Swedish father of modern plant nomenclature, Carl von Linne (Linnaeus).
