Anemone home garden plants are a genus of flowering plants under the Ranunculaceae family. Also known as Japanese windflower, this delicate flower is a great addition to a fall garden. Anemone home garden plants come in spring and fall blooming varieties. More than 100 species of anemones have been identified worldwide. These perennial plants grow from tubers and, while they do flower, are technically in the herb category. Anemones are typically white, deep red or blue; yellow anemones exist but are not common.
