Pulsatilla

<i>Pulsatilla vulgaris</i> ‘Rosen Glocke’ <i>Pulsatilla vulgaris</i> ‘Rosen Glocke’

Endemic to the calcium-rich, dry sunny moors of England, western France and Sweden, Pulsatilla is Latin for ‘sway’ and refers to the delightful crocus-like nodding spring flowers that easily frolic in a breeze. Tucked amid a veil of silky hairs, down-cloaked bright cerise pink blossoms reside upon dew-catching feathery tuffets defined by filigree-style soft green leaves. A radiant central cluster of yellow stamens and decorative seed heads furnish additional enticements, while sharp drainage and fertile alkaline niches in the rockery or a favored container keep this precious perennial satisfied.

Blooms March–April

Size: 12" high x 12" wide.

Hardy to zone 5.
