A few facts about the Japanese Anemone:

  • Even though they are called Japanese Anemones, these flowers are actually native to central China. {source}
  • Japanese anemone are an easy to grow perennial flower.
  • Anemone is also used as a medicinal relief to reduce cramps, regulate menstrual cycles and helps in managing mood troubles, depression and distress. {source}
