Does anyone know what this flower it?

It's probably a weed--again! The weeds here are so beautiful. I hope this one scattered its seeds and I have lots more next year. I was so surprised when it popped up nest to the bushes in front of my house! It looks like some type of daisy to me.

Drannhh is correct. This is an anemone. They are a nice looking flower especially if there is a lot in a clump with something to utilize the texture. It is an easy one.

It only lasted a couple of days but hopefully it spread some seeds and I'll have more next year! They are so beautiful and I love the color!

I think you will more luck propagating it from the root. Please see the link I posted above.

drannhh is correct. It will take much longer with seeds. They may also need statification to germinate the seeds.

Oh, that is beautiful and I am pretty sure it is an anemone. They are easy to grow bulbs, so it should come up and bless you every year: http://www.dkimages.com/discover/previews/888/25006889.JPG

That picture looks like the flowers on my orchid! I hope the little flowers come up next year, I was delighted when I saw the first one! It was in my yard when I was mowing and I went around it. When I was done, I got scissors and trimmed the grass around it so that I wouldn't destroy it.

Yes, I expect the beautiful flower will come up again and again as it is a perennial (meaning that it grows back from its root stock as opposed to seeding) and here is a page you might enjoy that discusses propagating them: http://www.plantingflowerbulbs.com/anemone-flowers.htm This will help in case you want to transplant your anemone, as the type of "root" it has, whether rhizome or tuber or fibrous root makes a difference in how to handle it. Anemones are one of the most beautiful easy to grow plants around and are considered by some to be invasive, in the sense of a pest, but I cannot agree with that at all, because I just love them, the more the better! Thanks for the BR :-)

you could be right about it being a type of daisy, it also looks something like a the little violet plants that pop up all over, without seeing it up close i can not make a decision. i don,t think it looks like a weed though, it is really pretty. happy gardening!

It did remind me, by the color, of my violet plant inside the house but it looked so soft and velvety I love this flower!

this IS very beautiful! unique petals and gorgeous colour. now if only I had weeds like this I wouldn't need to plant any seeds or real flowers. I don't think it's a daisy though. the shape and layout of the petals don't seem daisy like. initially i thought it might be a morning glory, but perhaps it's some african violet.
