Pulsatilla vulgaris Violet
Pulsatilla vulgaris is a cheerful sight in early spring. The 6-petalled violet-purple flowers with golden stamens look like a child's crayon drawing of a flower. The fuzzy, gray-green foliage is very attractive, as are the ripening seed heads.
Pulsatilla vulgaris looks great in rock gardens, along the edge of a path, or at the front of the border where the flowers can be admired up close. It blooms in early spring, making it a nice companion plant for daffodils.
Pulsatilla vulgaris is also known as Anemone pulsatilla, Anemone serotina, Windflower, Pasqueflower, and Meadow Anemone. Native to Europe. Hardy perennial in zones 4-9.
