Pulsatilla vulgaris Pasque Flower



Pulsatilla vulgaris has purple bell-shaped flowers with lots of yellow stamens that bloom on hairy stems over deeply cut, ferny, light green foliage. Also called Pasque Flower, it blooms in early spring. These early flowers are a great source of nectar for early honeybees. The flowers of Pulsatilla vulgaris are followed by showy, fluffy seed heads.

Pulsatilla vulgaris prefers mostly sun and average to moist soil that must be well-drained. Good in lime-rich soil. Pulsatilla appreciates adequate moisture during the heat of summer. The purple "petals" of Pasque Flower are actually sepals.

    We ship via UPS or USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

    All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

    Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

    We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
