Anemone keiskeana, a perennial, so-called a spring ephemeral, inhabits along the valleys or in the forests in mountainous regions, its rhizomes, thick and purple, crawling sideways. Radical leaves, dark green, consist of 3 leaflets, each triangular-oval shape with serrations on the margin. In the springtime, the leaves tinge light brown with white spots on them, the bottom sides purple-tinged. Leaves on stems are whorl at the stem tops in 3 segments, and in the center, borne peduncles with 3-3.5cm-in-diameter white to light purple flowers, opening facing upward. Bloom time: February-March.
