Pulsatilla vulgaris ‘Rote Glocke’


Pulsatilla vulgaris ‘Rote Glocke’ is a red flowering version of the glorious Pasque Flower. It produces deep red flowers in spring followed by ornamental seed heads.   This deciduous perennial has finely cut leaves that forms an attractive mound 10” high and wide. Grow in full to part sun in well drained, infertile soil.   It has a large taproot and is fairly drought tolerant but the taproot makes it difficult to transplant. In all other ways, it is an easy to grow and long lived perennial that looks great in rock gardens, scree and raised beds.  Found in meadows and grassy areas in the European Alps. Hardy to -20 degrees F. Ranunculaceae

‘Rote Glocke’ means red bell in German where this seed strain was developed.
