Pulsatilla flavescens

Is this a real species? Some authorities say it is P. patens 'Flavescens'. Either way I am delighted to see two blooms this year. The flower bud last year was eaten by a slug. I think this one is my favourite Pulsatilla.

I grew that a long time ago and have been missing it a LOT! I think Jelitto offers seed.

It is certainly one of the best pulsatillas. I can't wait to get my mitts on it...

(Counted 11 different things in bloom outside today, Todd: sorry!)

For every minion of the peaks there are a dozen steppe children growing in the dry Continental heart of all hemispheres still unknown to horticulture.

Yes, I do agree, Todd ;D The only things that bloom here now is the hoarfrosted freezedried leaves of my evergreens :'(

Min winter temp -8 or -9°C. Max summer temp 40°C. Thankfully, maybe once or twice a year only.
