“Meadow Anemone, Daughter of the Winds”


This lovely wildflower’s name Anemone means “daughter of the winds” in Greek. It was believed flowers only bloomed when the wind blew, which is not true. She prefers meadows, seeps, glades, and a bit more moisture than other wildflowers. Growth is 8-24 inches high and spreads 24-36 inches from a rhizomatous root system. Flowers are white, 5-petaled, and have yellow/green centers with deeply divided leaves. Bloom time is May to June, sporadically into August. It produces a lot of pollen, but not nectar. Nonetheless, it’s also a snack for waterfowl.

The Meskwaki and Ojibwa people used a root infusion to clear the throat for singing in ceremonies, alleviate pain, as an eye wash for crossed eyes, twitches, and poisoning, as well as for helping headaches and dizzy spells. The Iroquois used the root to treat tuberculosis and worms and combined it with liquor to counteract ‘witch medicine.’

Anemone is accompanied by the Variegated Fritillary butterfly and bees, highlighting the partnership between prairie plants and pollinators.

We offer hand made custom frames constructed from natural wood of your choice. Click on the photos below to open and preview the frame options.

All orders will be shipped in 3-10 business days via USPS Priority mail, UPS or FedEx, depending on the size of the item and whether framing was desired. For medium to larger works, and if crating is needed to safely ship, it will be UPS or FedEX. USPS can ship larger works but it is a lot more expensive!

If I anticipate framing will take longer for any reason, I will reach out and let you know! You will receive a tracking number via email once the work has shipped.
