I like all Pulsatillas regardless the color! I would like to grow more of any kind.

Beautiful, Luc! What strong, healthy plants and what a profusion of bloom!

What is the origin of your P. patens?  It's very different from the appearance of the native species that occurs here, in the form, flower colour and nodding buds.  I realize that P. patens is also a Eurasian species (not just North American), but can the forms really be that different?  Here are some photos of the species in the wild in this area:

Some of my Pulsatilla seeds have sprouted ;D Hope they grow as exuberant as yours, Luc!

Ditto what Lori said about the American Pulsatilla patens.  The Minnesota native type can also be seen on that same thread.

Nevertheless, those are some very well grown plants!  Do the flower stems continue to elongate as the flower ages, as they do with Pulsatilla turczaninovii?

What species are involved with P. x gayeri?

Rick

P.S.  Did you mean Pulsatilla georgica instead of georgii?

This is the only one beginning bloom in my garden, as of yet: a very nice form, in my opinion, of Pulsatilla vulgaris.  (I don't grow P. patens myself.)

Lori, to be honoust I have doubts about its naming for some time. The plant looks more like a P. pratensis type to me.
I have a plant labelled P. pratensis ssp. bohemica that looks close to this one. See the picture below.
I was told that the plant (with name P. patens) in the picture above was grown from seeds collected in Primovice, Slowak Rep.

The plant was originally labelled "Pulsatilla georgei" but it must be "P. georgica" no doubt.
It is a relatively small plant with small, light blue, hairy flowers.

I don't know much about P. gayeri. Got it from Gothenborg Botanics.
It looks to me as P. vulgaris is involved.

Posted elsewhere but I think they belong here too ;D
Although the "mogop" is a Norwegian native I have planted these in the meadow here as they were exterminated many years ago when my father-in-law was a boy due to grazing livestock.

          

Pulsatilla vernalis.

Great you could re-introduce :) Was it a Norwegian clone? are they spreading?
