Anemone patens (Pasque Flower)

Pasque Flower is a pretty tundra plant with several stems that rise 6-8 inches off the ground. On each stem is one flower with 5-8 petals. The range of color in the petals is from dark lavender to almost white. In the center of the flower are yellow stamens. Below the flower, around the stem is a leaf covered in silky hairs, as is the rest of the plant.

Additional Information:
Pasque Flower is a member of the Ranunculaceae family, which is Latin for little frog. The name was given to the family because a group of plants in this family grow where frogs live.

The Pasque Flower is used in some treatments of eye diseases like cataracts.
