Pulsatilla vulgaris






The Pulsatillas have been spectacular this year, the cool, clear weather brings out the best in them, they seem to glow in the clear sunshine. Most of these are from the Papageno strain with distictively fringed and frilled edges to the flowers. The first image, however is a mystery, maybe grown from seed, it flowered for the first time this year.

They are all beautiful ... but the first one is such a great colour. You seem to have got the knack with growing these ... they look so happy and healthy.

Hi Bernie,
I'm so glad you like the first one. I think it was grown from seed. I must go back and check my records.

Hi Phil,
They are great aren't they. I'm pleased to see that they are seeding around, so looking forward to more in the future.
