Pulsatilla vulgaris 'Rubra'

Pasque Flower

These fascinating flowers, once sacred to the early Celtic priests known as Druids, emerge from a nest of silky leaves. Flowers are followed by fuzzy seed heads which catch the light in the morning and evening. Of about 12 species, only Pulsatilla vulgaris is commonly grown. Others are found at nurseries specializing in rock garden plants. Need full sun in the North and partial shade in the South.
