The wandering anemone is not permanently attached by its base, it frequently crawls and drifts in the current from one spot to another. They vary in colour from yellow to orange and brown but locally are most commonly a light purple. By day they are found in small balls which look like a gathering of baked beans, and by night their sticky tentacles emerge. More frequently found on sheltered to moderately exposed coats and subtidal reefs in amongst seaweeds. The Karitane areas has a good population of wandering anemones and are easily found.
They may grow up to 20cm in length.
