Japanese Anemone

 Do not Feed
  • Common Name: Japanese Anemone
  • Latin Name: Anemone hupehensis; Anemone x hybrida
  • Family Name: Ranunculaceae
As with other anemones, this tall and sometimes invasive plant is a member of the Buttercup family, and contains Protoanemonin, which is derived from the chemical ranunculin, and if dried it converts into anemonic acid.  If ingested this could cause blistering of the mouth, stomach irritation and bloody diarrhoea so best to avoid.  See Anemone.
