Floral Spotlight: Anemones

source

Not to be mistaken with anenomes, anemones are a perennial herb of the buttercup family, and come in shades of red, blue, white, purple and pink, with jet black hearts.  Their blooming time is typically September - May, making these lovely flowers a perfect pick for winter weddings.

Anemones are a stunning flower that work perfectly as a single bloom or together in a bouquet. Here are some of my favorites:

Excuse the quality of this blackberry-cam picture I took a few weeks back, but I loved the Silver Brunia and Anemone combo!



I love how these anemones make this bouquet pop (oh and the billy buttons too!)

And look how this couple carried the anenome theme all the way through their invites and louboutins!

And how about some red anemones?

  3. Beautiful flowers! And I love those heels!

    You do have a typo in your headline. It says "Anenomes", but in the article, you say "Not to be mistaken with anenomes, anemones..."

    I'm guessing the correct spelling is "anemones" but your title says otherwise.

  5. These are such lovely flowers! I adore the baby pink ones and the ones on that cake! But the blue are gorgeous as well, and I don't see them that often. Now while I am not a red person, the bouquet of red ones with the red sash are fabulous! Awesome roundup sweetie ;-)))

  14. Beautiful Post! Anemones have become a recent favorite of mine, had to hand paint them on stemware for a client. I especially favor the white ones. They remind be of an irresistible bright eyed beauty.

  19. I have to admit that I am a little "flower-challenged" so I did not know what anemones were until just now :) SO beautiful. The white ones in combination with the greens and grays are stunning. Thanks for the education, Jacin!
