The genus Anemone L. belongs to the buttercup family (Ranunculaceae L.). There are three species on the collection section of the FSBSI “Russian Research Institute of Floriculture and Subtropical Crops”: Anemone coronaria, Anemone blanda and Anemone hupehensis. Currently, the collection of the Institute contains sixteen cultivars of the poppy anemone, two cultivars of Japanese anemone – ‘Pamina’ and ‘Max Vogel’, and a white hybrid form, as well as two cultivars of Balkan anemone – ‘Rosea’ and ‘White Splendor’. The flowering time of A. coronaria cultivars is 51–68 days, A. blanda – up to 45, A. hupehensis – 70–90 days (10–12 weeks). The average diameter of the flower of A. coronaria domestic cultivars is 8.5 cm, the average height of the peduncle is 34.6 cm, while the average flower diameter of foreign cultivars is 6.5 cm and the average height of the peduncle is 24.6 cm. The diameter of the flower of ‘White Splendor’ cultivar is 5.0 cm and the height of the peduncles is 15.5 cm. One plant of A. hupehensis usually has from seven to twelve peduncles, their height reaches 120 cm. There are 2–3 simultaneously blossoming flowers on one peduncle. The diameter of A. hupehensis flowers is 4–7 cm.
