Unknown Wildflower

Does anyone know what kind of flower this is? It kind of looks like a clematis or an old fashioned single petal rose but it is not a vine or a shrub? It looks more like a wild flower, I just don't know what kind. If anyone knows what it is I would be most grateful!

Anemone robusstisima - Japanese Anemone

RE: Unknown Wildflower

Actually the correct terminology is Anemone x hybrida - 'Robustissima' is a cultivar name.

And obviously not a native plant :-)

RE: Unknown Wildflower

Thank you reball517 and gardengal48! Now I just need to figure out how to grow these here in NY.

Thanks again!!

RE: Unknown Wildflower

"Robustissima" says it all - a very vigorous plant with a spreading habit, winter hardy in zones 4-8. You should have no trouble growing it in NY.
