I am new to this plant. Does this go dormant?

I don't know this plant at all so I Googled it. Just be aware that many of the images are incorrect and are actually Dimorphotheca, not Anemone.

The purple flowers are superficially similar in arty photos. The first one on this Google search is Dimorphotheca as is the one directly below it.

Here is a link that might be useful: Dimorphotheca pictures masquerading as Anemone hortensis

No - I don't I'm afraid. I've never grown it. I just wanted to clear up the misleading image thing. My hunch would be, yes.
