Pasque Flower, 'Rubra'

Genus: Pulsatilla.

Species: Pulsatilla vulgaris.

Smaller of flower than our wild pulsatilla patens, this little lovely was just smiling up with this fuzzy red face and I had to get it. I have it in a rather rich bed but on the more shallow and dry side of the bed. Good long morning sun and full to dappled through until evening. Those I've talked with, many have lost the pasque flowers when planted, but I've heard that about everything and remain very positive about it. The encircling bidens have not left it alone, I have just made sure the leaves are coming up and through so they see sunshine. We'll see. 2011
