Anemone nikoensis: A
perennial herb, 10-30cm in height, occurs on forest edges in fields
and mountains. Rhizomes run sideways to propagate. Leaves are of
bipinnately compounds that cut themselves in small segments afresh,
not making radical leaves at the bases of the plants. Stem tips
generate single, erect flower stalks and set single approximately
4cm in diameter flowers; petal-like sepals, 5-6 in number, are white
- inside is white and outside tinges re-purple to light red. Many
stamens and pistils.
Very rarely do two- to three-flowered
individuals appear. Bloom
time: April- May.
