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, when they are usually blooming.

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.
