Pasque flower. Super attractive when in bud, covered in silky hairs. Often large, brightly coloured flowers, over delicately fern-like foliage. Even the feathery seed heads extend the interest of this excellent plant. A native of Eastern England across Northern Europe to the Ukraine. Best in a well drained soil in full sun. Good on chalk soils. Pulsatilla maybe a corruption of paschal, from Hebrew, meaning passion, referring to the Easter period, typically when these plants are in flower.
