Pulsatilla vulgaris


Pot Size: 5.25 Inch Square Pot

  • Large, brightly colored red flowers in spring
  • Ferny foliage & hairy stems
  • Terrific combined with spring-flowering bulbs

Beautiful purple flowers appear in spring atop deeply dissected green foliage that is covered with silvery fuzz. Flowers are bell-shaped and give rise to silky seed heads that are quite attractive. It is an excellent clump-forming plant for rock gardens. Pulsatilla means "sway" in Latin, in reference to the flowers swaying in the wind. Pasque Flower is a French reference to Easter, which is when they are usually blooming.

Uses: Edging, Rock Gardens
Critter Resistance: Deer, Rabbits
Notable Features: Drought Tolerant
Growth Habit: Clump-forming

Homeowner Growing Tips: Grow in full sun, preferably, or partial shade. Pulsatilla requires very well-drained soil, gritty soil, and will do best in a raised bed or rock garden. Amend with compost and coarse sand or grit before planting; mulch with a layer of gravel after planting. Best grown in cooler climates, where they will be more drought tolerant. In warmer climates, they will require even moisture throughout the summer. Plants resent transplanting once established.
