The anemone I grow with the tufted centre is one that gets passed 
around here.  I've had it about 35 years and I can't remember who 
gave it to me. It was not growing in my grandparents' gardens, 
though, so probably isn't really old.

  No one ever had a name for it, unless someone called it "the double 
anemone", but when we saw some pictures of 'Vestal', Victoria 
gardeners decided that might  be its name.
