Anemone (pronounced /Ã‰â„¢Ã‹Ë†nÃ‰â€ºmÃ‰â„¢niÃ‹Â/, from Greek ÃŽâ€ ÃŽÂ½ÃŽÂµÃŽÂ¼ÃŽÂ¿Ãâ€š 'wind'), is a genus of about 120 species of flowering plants in the buttercup family Ranunculaceae in the north and south temperate zones. They are closely related to Pasque flowers (Pulsatilla) and Hepaticas (Hepatica); some botanists include both of these genera within Anemone.
