Anemone coronaria (poppy anemone, Spanish marigold, "dağ lalesi" in Turkish, "Kalanit" in Hebrew, "Shaqa'iq An-Nu'man" in Arabic) is a species of flowering plant in the genus Anemone, native to the Mediterranean region.

Anemonies grow in the wild in Israel,and are quite ubiquitous in the red form. This cluster of purple and white anemonies, found near the Megido air-strip are quite special.
