Pulsatilla vulgaris 'Pinwheel Blue Violet Shades' (Pinwheel Series)
- Position: full sun
- Soil: fertile, well-drained soil (or equal parts of a loam-based potting compost such as John Innes No1 and grit for container-grown specimens)
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: March to April
- Hardiness: fully hardy
Upward-facing flowers with pointed petal tips, rise above the mounds of finely dissected foliage, which is covered in soft hairs. A tactile, low-growing plant that would make an interesting addition to a sensory garden.
- Garden care: Plant very firmly in well-drained soil and take care when carrying out routine border maintenance since Pasque flowers resent having their roots disturbed.
