Article about more than one man and a single flower (7)


I believe the answer is:


I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'a single flower' is the definition.
'anemone' can be an answer for 'flower' (anemone is a kind of flower). I am not certain of the 'a single' bit.

'article about more than one man' is the wordplay.
'article about' becomes 'em' (I can't justify this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
'more than' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'one' becomes 'an' (an apple is one apple).
'man' becomes 'one'.
'em' put after 'an' is 'anem'.

'and' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for anemone that I've seen before include "A flower; mean one (anag.)" , "Plant with brightly coloured flowers - found also in sea" , "perennial" , "Pretty flower or sea animal" , "bloom" .)
