Adonis flower

Greek - The rose, the anemone or the pheasant's-eye. It was said that the rose was originally a white flower that became stained with the blood of Aphrodite who was scratched by a thorn when she went to help the dying Adonis. The anemone is said to have sprung either from the blood of Adonis or from the tears of Aphrodite. The pheasant's-eye, like the anemone, sprang from Adonis' blood. Occasionally known as Adonis flower.
