Award-winning Pulsatilla vulgaris (Pasque Flower) is a lovely early-blooming perennials, which bears a profusion of large, showy blossoms (2-3 in. wide or 5-7 cm) on short stems in early spring. A single plant may thrust over 30 blossoms over a couple of months! The attractive bell-shaped blossoms, in shades of blues and purples, contrast beautifully with the luminous boss of golden yellow stamens. Nodding when they open, they gradually extend upwards to face the sun. They are followed by equally ornamental, plume-like seedheads (resembling those of clematis) in fluffy spherical clusters. Its ferny, silky foliage remains attractive throughout the growing season. Pasque Flowers will seed themselves all over, if you are lucky, then go summer dormant. Enjoying a long season of interest, these low growing plants are suitable for rock gardens or the front of the perennial border. They combine well with spring-flowering bulbs and ground covers.
