Pink Flower With Yellow Center Could Be An Anemone

Ask the Expert: pink flower ID
Everyone asks me what kind of flower it is, and I don\’t have an answer.  It is a shrubby spreader.  Pink flowers with about 4-5 delicate petals and a fluffy yellow center.  Sort of reminds me a bit of a pink dogwood blossom.  It has firm stocks that feel like velvet, with multiple round buds that have taken weeks to open up this summer.  Large green leaves, similar to a grape leaf.  About 3-5 feet tall.  Thanks for your help in solving this mystery.

Anemone Hupehensis

Anemone Hupehensis

Without a picture I am taking a stab in the dark.  I think it is an Anemone hupehensis sometimes called a Chinese anemone. I found  a picture of this type of anemone on the Missouri Botanical Garden site.

Does your flower look anything like this one?

This particular Anemone is a woody-based, fibrous rootstock perennial. It blooms mid-summer to autumn with pink or white flowers.  It can get up to 3′ in height and 16″ in width.
