Also known as the wind flower (Anemos is the Greek word for wind), these perennial blooms are thought to bring luck, protect against evil, and also represent anticipation. There are various mythological stories associated with the Anemone, my favorite being that fairies sleep under the petals after they close at sunset. Though the classic white and black anemones are often associated with weddings, they do come in red, blue, purple, pink and even yellow. They bloom in single or double blossoms and make such an elegant adornment for cakes, bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces, and also as hair flowers.
