Native to the prairies of Canada and the United States, this flower naturally grows in moist wooded areas, ditches, seasonally wet areas and meadows. Also known as windflower, Canada anemone comes from an ancient Greek word meaning "wind." Greek legend states that the first anemones grew from the tears of Venus, who wept for her lost love; in the language of flowers, anemones indicate anticipation or fading hope. In medieval times, anemones were considered a powerful protection against fever and disease; people often wore or carried the blossoms because of this belief. Since the roots of this plant contain a powerful natural antiseptic, at one time they provided a valuable medicine for Native Americans.
