Pulsatilla vulgaris

Pulsatilla-vulgaris

Pasque Flower,  Pulsatilla vulgaris, is one of our favorite spring flowering plants. It produces a bouquet of large purple flowers in spring followed by ornamental seed heads above a mound finely cut leaves to 10” high.   Grow in full to part sun in well drained, infertile soil.   It has a large taproot which makes it fairly drought tolerant but 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
