Anemone - Gifts of Anticipation and Love



Anemone coronaria (poppy anemone, Spanish marigold, “dağ lalesi” in Turkish, “Calanit” in Hebrew, “Shaqa’iq An-Nu’man” in Arabic) is a species of flowering plant in the genus Anemone, native to the Mediterranean region.

The anemone flower is unquestionably one of the more delicate and beautiful blossoms grown today; however, they are also steeped in myth and touted for their uses. The origin of the anemone flower’s name is a perfect example of its place in mythological history. The red anemone flower is often associated with the death of Adonis, who was stabbed by the sharp tusks of a wild boar. Aphrodite – the beloved of Adonis – heard his cry and ran to him. She found that, as he died, the anemones around his body turned from a crisp white to a shocking red. She then named these blossoms the windflower – namely because the same wind that gently opens the flower will also blow away the faded petals, thus representing the transitory nature of her lover’s life. The anemone flower is also considered a medicinal plant. Although these flowers can be poisonous to both animals and humans, they are thought – in small doses – to aid in a variety of ailments. 
Anemones have a large assortment of symbolism tied to them. They are thought to represent anticipation and unfading love, good luck and protection against evil. As a gift, these flowers may be meaningful in a number of ways, from presenting them to someone stepping into a new stage of life, to telling the recipient that you will always love them.
