I love this flower but have no idea what it is. Can someone please help to identify it? The entire plant was approximately 6 feet tall. The leaves resembled begonia leaves. The stem was very long from the base of the plant to the bloom. The petals had an almost waxy feel to them. I hope this description was helpful.

What is the name of this flower-kailynn-flower.jpg

Thank you

Any thorns? I'm sure it's something else, but my brain really wants to think that's a blackberry flower...

No thorns. Everything is smooth as wax. The person it belongs to was told that it was a Japanese Daisy. I googled that name but nothing came up. Also if it helps, the flower circumfrence is about 2-3 inches.

Never heard of it called Japanese daisy. It's a white anemone, sometimes it is called a Wind Flower. This particular species is also called Japanese Anemone.

It's an anemone. The ones I had were very invasive, but bloomed at the end of summer when everything else was over.
