This pulsatilla is no exception ;D  Nice closeup, Cliff!
I try to establish some specimens at my cabin.

This is perhaps the best Pulsatilla we grow in our BG... our plant is now 25 years old and shows no signs of slowing down.  I have it in my garden as well grown from seed gathered from our BG.  We are now even selling some in our annual plant sale...fetching nice prices too I might add!

I just sowed seeds of the standard white-flowered P. alpina.

Here's another rather nice "white" one... It was heinously mislabelled when I bought it, but was subsequently ID'd as Pulsatilla albana var. lutea over at the SRGC site.  I like the dusky, nodding buds.

I've grown that one Lori (Pulsatilla albana var. lutea), lasted utter neglect for a decade and a half in a part of the garden I have since abandoned, every year flowering even amongst the weeds and trees seedlings enveloping the bed.  Such is the history of an overworked person with a ridiculously long daily work commute for many years.  It's very small, a Pulsatilla sized for a trough, the soft blue and yellow coloration is sweet.

I hope thye seeds of my white alpina are as nice as the one you show Cliff.

We used to have P. albana lutea at the BG, but it was potted in the apine house and was not happy being there.  It passed before I got a chnace to plant it outside.  I have morer seeds sown this year.
