The Anemone is a bulbous plant, a member of the Buttercup family. The most common Anemones are the red ones, which can be found growing throughout Israel from the north to the Negev. There are also white, pink and blue anemones as well.

The flower does not have sepals or petals, but only a coloured perianth. There are three green leaves at the top of the stem just underneath the flower.

The colour of the Anemone perianth starts off red, but as the flower blossoms the base of the perianth becomes white.

The "heart" of the Anemone is dark purple. It flowers from January to April
