Pulsatilla (Pasque Flower)

Pasque Flowers or Cowshells are native of alpine rocky meadows from central, southern and eastern Europe, and of sandy beaches in northern Europe to North America and Asia. They make small, yet dense clumps with very hairy, strongly dissected, almost feather-like leaves. Their elegant, large, cup-shaped flowers are born in early spring. Depending on the species these may be burgundy, yellow, white, to rose and purplish, or dark blue.
Note: In this utmost diverse genus it is extremely difficult to precisely separate species, as well as to distinguish its numerous subspecies, varieties and forms from each other with precision, not to mention that all plants easily hybridize. Our seed derives from mother plants which fit by their habit to the type description. However we cannot guarantee that all species are absolutely correctly named. Under all cicumstances the plants you will raise from the supplied seeds are as shown on the photos.
Sow seeds flat in any well drained, very sandy soil in autumn in pots in a protected spot. Seeds require a cooling period for several months before they may start to germinate in early spring. Cultivate in pots for at least two years, then carefully transplant the dormant, fleshy rhizomes in autumn. Plants should grow undisturbed to develop their whole beauty.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
