Charming upturned lavender flowers in spring  are followed by fluffy seed-heads.  Pulsatilla takes a while to get established and then does not like being disturbed, so plant it in the right spot and leave it alone. If happy, plants will self-seed, so leave the seed heads to allow colonies to build up. Lovely planted amongst spring flowering bulbs. Enjoys full sun, well drained light but humus rich soil. 20cmx 20cm.
