Glorious shade of light blue, my favorite color.  How true does "Budapest seedstrain" come from seed, and if one has lots of various color Pulsatilla vulgaris plants nearby, will the strain degenerate into something other than what is qualified as the "Budapest seedstrain".  I have seen photos of this seed strain labeled as "Budapest" and they have always appeared as superior ethereal blue-flowered forms.

Very nice Mark S, and a hearty welcome!  Glad to see you made your way to this side of the pond.

For years I grew this particular Pulsatilla, and liked it very much... seemed to be one that might even be small enough for a trough.

I have the white form of Pulsatilla slavica in flower at the moment. Not as impressive as the blue form but nice anyway.

Wow, I'd say it's very impressive!  If it is even more impressive in blue, I can't imagine how. :o

A very fresh look to that one, Mark.  (Actually, it looks quite tasty to me  ;D.)

Thanks for stopping in, and we hope to see more of your additions here!
