The common name for this flower, wind flower, is derived from the Greek word “ánemos,” which means wind. The wind flower, or anemone, has a history in Greek and Roman mythology. Aphrodite was in love with Adonis, and she kept him by her side past the curfew allowed by the Gods, thus triggering the vengeance of Persephone. Weeping for Adonis’ death, Aphrodite swore Adonis would live for ever and this beautiful flower was born out of her tears.
